Seasonal Project Officer - Findhorn, Nairn and Lossie Fisheries Trust and Esk District Salmon Fishery Board
Salary: A salary of up to £22,000 (pro rata) will be payable dependent on experience.
The post with the Esk DSFB will undertake work principally in the North and South Esk and River Tay catchments, across Angus and Perthshire.
The Findhorn, Nairn and Lossie Fisheries Trust position will cover these three river catchments in Moray, with additional opportunities to work on the River Conon and Spey.
The Esk DSFB and the Findhorn, Nairn and Lossie Fisheries Trust will each recruit a Seasonal Project Officer to support volunteers in the clearance of invasive non-native plants and control of American mink. Each post holder will report to the respective Scottish Invasive Species Initiative Project Officer or DSFB / Fishery Trust Director and will be required to manage and liaise with volunteers and deliver a planned programme of invasive non-native species control over the summer period.
These seasonal posts (each full time post lasting up to 3.5 months from date of appointment) are required to help put in place the volunteer network and activity programme, giving the SISI Project Officers additional capacity to carry out activities and implement structures that will protect SISI outputs and outcomes in this large geographical area.
