The FSC is looking for two Project Officers to join our FSC BioLinks project team. One of these posts will be based in the West Midlands (specific base negotiable) and the second can be based in either the West Midlands or London (specific base negotiable).
These posts will involve coordinating our place-based volunteer training programme and delivering a range of recording project activities across either the West Midlands or London and the surrounding area.

This is an ideal opportunity for somebody wishing to develop a career in the biodiversity training and biological recording sectors and to join an established and respected national project.
Effective nature conservation decisions depend on the availability of good quality and robust information. Current trends are measured in biological records. FSC BioLinks is creating more records with increased accuracy and focuses on those species that are currently data deficient. As a result of stronger data sets the natural heritage will be better managed, heritage will be more accurately recorded, and a community of volunteers will grow stronger.
Over 2000 volunteers will be involved, bringing together a number of dispersed volunteers, with skills in biological recording and biological identification, and new volunteers. Success will achieve accessible learning outcomes for target audiences by developing/upscaling structured learning pathways.
