Based in Mid Wales with Radnorshire Wildlife Trust.
Rhos pastures are a frequent part of the beautiful Mid Wales landscape. They are generally undervalued for their species richness and ecosystem services potential and are often degraded. Focussed around Rhayader, this collaborative project aims to improve the management of rhos pastures in the area, increase their benefit to wildlife and the environment, and gain recognition for their value with communities.
We are seeking someone experienced in landowner advisory work and project management to deliver this two-year Rhos Pasture Restoration project, with help from a Community Engagement Officer. You will work with landowners to improve the management of rhos pastures and oversee capital works; work with volunteers to record and monitor wildlife; and work with communities on arts and heritage activities that raise the profile of rhos pastures and benefit local businesses.
This is a broad-ranging collaborative project with much engagement work done during the development of the project. Active partners include community groups, Wildlife Trusts and NRW.
The project is based around Rhayader in Mid Wales. The Radnorshire Wildlife Trust office is in Llandrindod Wells though working from home is acceptable, particularly while Covid-19 restrictions apply. A full job description and application form can be downloaded from the RWT website.
Closing date is 9am on Friday 4th December. Interviews (initially via Zoom) on 11th December.
This is a Welsh Government Sustainable Management Scheme (SMS) project delivered through the Welsh Government Rural Communities - Rural Development Programme 2014-2020, which is funded by the Welsh Government and the European Union.
