Salary: NLW £11.44 per hour based on 35 hours per week, plus paid holidays, pension contributions and accommodation on-site.

Contract length: Temporary post for approx. 16 weeks starting on 2 April 2023

This exciting role will see you responsible for one of the most important tern nesting colonies in the North West. Responsibilities of the post include monitoring breeding terns, waders and ducks, carrying out nest protection duties, and producing an end-of-season report.

The post holder will also work alongside the South Walney Seasonal Warden as well as volunteers.

Main Responsibilities and Accountabilities:

  • Survey and monitoring
  • Nest protection
  • Visitor management
  • Reporting
  • Liaising with the Local Community and Volunteers
  • Assisting the other Warden and Reserves Manager with the overall management of the site

The contract will start on 2 April 2024 and run for approximately 16 weeks until 19 July 2024, depending on the breeding season.

Accommodation is included and provided onsite.

The closing date for applications is 09:00 on Friday 23rd February 2024.

Interviews will be held at South Walney Nature Reserve on Friday 1st March 2024.
