Saving Devon’s Treescapes is a 5 year project aiming to plant and nurture 250,000 trees outside of woodlands across Devon in response to Ash Dieback.

Your role will be to provide advisory services to landowners and farmers to support the successful delivery of all relevant habitat management, restoration, and re-creation targets of the Saving Devon’s Treescapes Project, which will secure a more resilient and coherent network of habitats across Devon in response to the ash dieback disease.

The ideal candidate will have strong communication skills and the ability to develop strong working relationships with a wide range of stakeholders including farmers/landowners, volunteers and project partners. You will have previous experience in delivering significant conservation projects on third party land.

We are one of the larger locally based organisations that collectively make up The Wildlife Trusts. DWT has pioneered the reintroduction of beavers in England and the restoration of internationally rare habitats like Culm Grassland.

In return for your hard work and dedication you’ll enjoy a wide range of benefits including:

  • 25 days annual leave plus bank holidays (increasing to 28 days after 5 years’ service)
  • Agile working arrangements including home and Cricklepit Mill office
  • Contributory pension scheme (conditions apply)
  • Death in Service cover
  • Training and development opportunities

This is a full time, permanent post (with funding agreed until the end of December 2025) contractually based at Cricklepit Mill. The project is being delivered Devon wide and you will need to be comfortable with regular travel and have access to your own vehicle.

Interviews are being held on Wednesday 8 December.
