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.

The post holder will also work alongside the South Walney Seasonal Warden as well as volunteers.
Main Responsibilities and Accountabilities:
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.
