Two Moors Pine Marten Project Lead

Salary: £32,127pa (80% pro-rata) plus 7% pension

Closing date: Sunday 11 December

Do you want to play a critical role in the reintroduction of one of Britain’s rarest mammals to South West England?

The Two Moors Pine Marten Project is seeking a passionate, highly skilled ecologist, communicator and project manager to work with a diverse range of stakeholders to secure support for the reintroduction of pine martens to South West England. This challenging but highly rewarding role will be integral to the recovery of pine martens in England.

The reintroduction of pine martens has the potential to polarise views from different communities of interest. The postholder will be required to navigate these complexities with authority, confidence and professionalism. Securing government consents will require a rigorous scientific approach, leading and supervising a range of surveys, studies and assessments with expert partners and contractors.

Devon Wildlife Trust (DWT) is Devon’s leading wildlife conservation charity, with over 36,000 members, 350 regular volunteers, 100 staff and 63 nature reserves. We are one of the larger locally based organisations that collectively make up The Wildlife Trusts. DWT has pioneered the reintroduction of beavers in England and the restoration of internationally rare habitats like Culm Grassland.

In return for your hard work and dedication you’ll enjoy a wide range of benefits including:

  • 25 days annual leave plus bank holidays increasing to 28 days after 5 years’ service (pro-rata)
  • Agile working arrangements including home working
  • Flexitime system
  • Salary progression (subject to satisfactory performance)
  • Contributory pension scheme (conditions apply)
  • Death in Service cover
  • Access to an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP)
  • Cycle to work scheme
  • Training and development opportunities

This is a part-time (30 hours per week) permanent post based at Cricklepit Mill.

This post is being offered as a permanent role with initial funding secured for the Development Phase until the end of December 2023. Our intention is that this post will continue into the Delivery Phase (January 2024 until December 2026) subject to funding and statutory consents.

Interviews are being held on Monday 19 December.

We will also consider applications on a secondment basis.

We welcome candidates of all backgrounds and abilities who meet the essential criteria for this role. We are an inclusive organisation that is seeking to involve more diverse audiences in our work.
