This Senior Conservation Officer vacancy is an exciting opportunity to play a key role in shaping the direction of conservation across the Yorkshire and Humber area.  


You will be responsible for driving and overseeing the work of the RSPB's conservation team within Yorkshire and the Humber, ensuring delivery of the relevant outcomes of the RSPB's Saving Nature Strategy. 

The role will lead, manage and develop the conservation team, helping to deliver a work programme focused on our priority landscapes, species and habitats most notably lowland wetlands, estuaries and coastal/marine. This will be achieved by deploying the appropriate conservation tools to ensure we achieve our conservation objectives. This may include site safeguard casework, species recovery, land management advice, conservation projects and engagement in land use and marine policy. 

The Senior Conservation Officer has a key role in instigating and managing programmes and projects, in association with RSPB colleagues. This includes those led by RSPB and RSPB's delivery in wider partnerships, particularly within priority landscapes. The successful candidate will have an important external role, building positive relationships with key partners and stakeholders so that RSPB's policies and messages are understood and furthered within relevant partnerships and fora. 

We are looking for someone capable of leading our conservation work to deliver the greatest impact for nature. This will require the ability to understand the range of conservation tools, prioritise these to ensure we are doing the most important things in the right places, and to lead people to and through delivery. Essential qualities will therefore be leadership, the ability to prioritise, time management, communications skills and energy.
