Senior Species Recovery Officer

Reference: JUL20218783

Location: Flexible

Salary: £32,400.00 - £35,944.00 Per Annum

Benefits: Pension, Life Assurance, 26 days Annual Leave

About the role:

The evocative call of curlews has heralded the arrival of spring for generations. Sadly, numbers are plummeting in the UK, which holds internationally important numbers of this species. A major part of this role will be to head up our Curlew Recovery Programme, which includes ‘Curlews in Crisis’ – a new £3.6 million LIFE+ project.

Recognising the enormity of the ecological crisis, the RSPB is committed to engaging and empowering people to help address it.

About you:

You’ll be a passionate advocate for species recovery and the conservation of breeding waders. You will have empathy for people and a commitment to affording volunteers opportunities to contribute to species recovery.

You need to be able to create a vision, focus and facilitate effective partnerships to recover some of our priority species in the UK. You must be able to drive and direct change across a wide remit utilizing your skills in facilitation and leadership. You’ll come to us armed with exceptional management skills. You need to be brilliant with people, projects and finance; to know when to delegate and when to take ownership. You’ll need a good working knowledge of UK conservation issues and the conservation toolkit available for species recovery. You’ll understand the issues devolution brings and be adept at building relationships and partnerships.

You will be a team player, taking an interest in the wider work of the RSPB and willing to lend a hand when colleagues are stretched.

Everything you do will be in harmony with our values and ambitions, putting wildlife conservation at the core of our work and in the minds of our supporters.

This is an exciting established full-time position. Location is negotiable within the UK but you will be expected to make regular trips to RSPB Headquarters in Sandy, Bedfordshire. You will be managed by the Head of Global Species Recovery.
