Vincent Wildlife Trust (VWT) is looking for a Bat Programme Manager to drive forward its bat conservation programme, build on existing success and create new projects and areas of work to deliver the Trust’s Ten-Year Strategy.
VWT is a specialist mammal research and conservation charity, working on threatened mammals in Britain, Ireland and increasingly mainland Europe. Our work to date has focused on mustelids (the weasel family), including pine marten and polecat, and the rarer bats. We have 37 reserves for the greater and lesser horseshoe bats. These buildings now support around 50% of Britain’s greater horseshoe bats and a significant proportion of our lesser horseshoe bats, and we continue to use them as a resource for showcasing best practice in roost design and enhancement.
Although most of the Trust’s work is currently focused on Britain and Ireland, we also work in mainland Europe, with links to research institutions and other mammal NGOs on the continent: our level of engagement varies from simple information exchange, through fact finding visits and two-way study tours, to full research projects.
