We're looking for an organised, dynamic, and passionate person to lead the team and work programme delivery on this large and exciting upland RSPB nature reserve. This is an exciting and varied role that presents a fantastic opportunity to make a real difference for nature, at scale! Geltsdale is one of the RSPB’s most significant flagship upland reserves, and this role will see the successful candidate drive forward our landscape scale conservation delivery and working to re-enable natural processes.
To make a success of this opportunity, you'll be a capable manager with the ability to work well with a broad range of contacts, both within the RSPB and beyond. You'll be able to apply your strong programme and people management skills in a pragmatic and focused way to enable the reserve team to deliver the best possible outcomes for our priority habitats and species.
What's the role about?
The reserve is at the top of the North Pennines AONB, spanning the counties of Northumberland and Cumbria. Working closely with our tenant grazier we manage the site with extensive cattle grazing utilising NoFence technology, to deliver our ecological land management. The reserve sits at the heart of our Pennines and Dales priority landscape, so acts as the core for some of our wider landscape conservation delivery for priority species and habitats. The role will see you working closely alongside our wider conservation team and partners alike. Geltsdale has long been an important site for demonstrating innovative techniques for habitat restoration, sustainable agriculture and upland management and remains one of our most important demonstration sites where we spend a significant amount of time hosting visits to the reserve.
