Beelines North East - Project Team
Are you passionate about nature recovery? Love working with others to bring about change? Want to work on a new and exciting project? Then we would love to hear from you!
Urban Green Newcastle and Northumberland Wildlife Trust are delighted to be working in partnership for an 18-month project to ‘bring the buzz back’ to the city and surrounding areas. Working with the Buglife B-lines initiative and other key partners, the project will develop a network of nectar-rich habitats across Newcastle, North Tyneside and SE Northumberland. Sites will include public parks, hospital grounds and the landscape sculpture of Northumberlandia.
Urban Green Newcastle is now looking to recruit a dynamic and enthusiastic project team. Additional posts are to be appointed by Northumberland Wildlife Trust. All posts are fixed term (18 months). Secondments will be considered.
Working as part of a multidisciplinary team, the role involves helping to manage and improve the beautiful parks across the Urban Green Newcastle estate. In addition to practical conservation work, the Ranger plays an essential role in making everyone feel valued and welcome, engaging with the public, volunteers and stakeholders on a daily basis. Being the ‘eyes and the ears’ on the ground, the Ranger helps to protect and monitor our amazing wildlife and heritage, and provides valuable input into policy, plans and project development. While the role will principally be focused on the parks, from time to time some input into the allotments may be necessary. This Ranger post is funded through the Beelines North East project, and while managed by Urban Green Newcastle, will work closely with the Beelines Project Manager, and deliver the requirements of the project to deliver improvements for pollinators across the estate.
Closing date: Monday 4 October.
Interview: w/c 11 October
