Avon Wildlife Trust

Pollinator Recovery Manager

Are you passionate about Pollinators? Could you help the West of England become the UK’s Pollinator Capital?

Insects pollinate £690 million worth of crops in the UK annually, with wild pollinators carrying out 85-95%. Despite this, the steep decline of pollinating insects and the loss of the habitats that support them is well documented.

In the West of England there is an ambition to become the UK’s Bee & Pollinator Capital, as the Pollinator Recovery Manager you will play a key role.

The initial project focuses on the West Mendips, between AWT’s Folly Farm and Browne’s Folly reserves. Your team will work with farmers, landowners and communities to grow the network of habitats between these reserves. To ensure climate resilience, you will work on various priority habitats that are key to the survival of pollinators.

As the Pollinator Recovery Manager you will:

  • Lead and grow your team, offering advice and support to farmers, landowners, and communities.
  • Develop and deliver inspiring events that raise awareness, conduct research, and create habitats on the ground.
  • Champion the needs of pollinators in strategic partnerships, work with expert partners to monitor sites and explore how climate change affects pollinators.
