We are looking for a dynamic and motivated individual with ecological experience to fill a six-month seasonal post as Field Officer, to assist our Project Officer in the delivery of the next phase of Plovers in Peril – an exciting, five-year grant-funded project that aims to reverse the declines of beach nesting birds in North West Norfolk, through a combination of on-the-ground species protection, collaborative partnership working and community empowerment.

As the Seasonal Field Officer, you will be assisting with all aspects of project delivery through the breeding season (April-August). You will be based at RSPB Titchwell Marsh but will work predominantly at the project site – a stretch of shingle beach joining Snettisham and South Heacham.

Plovers in Peril was launched in 2021, in partnership with Wild Ken Hill to establish vital monitoring and species protection measures for beach nesting birds on a previously unmonitored stretch of coast. With vital funding from the Borough Council, we are excited to embark on the next phase of the project where we look to grow our volunteer team, empower local communities, develop innovative opportunities for collaborative working and generate a bigger voice for beach nesting birds in North West Norfolk. Your work will help more than just ringed plover – you will be working on a project that seeks to cultivate positive change for all the special wildlife inhabiting this important shingle habitat, our vision is to create a place where wildlife and people thrive. Will you join us?
