Job description

Are you passionate about nature? Do you enjoy working outdoors and want to be a part of shaping the future health of our nature reserves?

Reserves Assistant x 2
Salary: £19,500 per annum
Contract type: Fixed term
Working hours: Full time
Location: County-wide, Somerset

This is an exciting opportunity for two full-time Reserves Assistants to be part of projects funded through the Green Recovery Challenge Fund:

Out of the Ashes will deliver practical management and ecological restoration to address the Ash dieback disease challenge across our worst affected reserves in Somerset.

Avalon Marshes Wetland Wonderland will work across the Avalon Marshes, in partnership with the RSPB, to achieve a thriving, nature-rich wetland landscape.

You will join Somerset Wildlife Trust’s experienced team of dedicated and professional land managers in one of the most biodiverse counties of England, and will work closely with contractors and dedicated volunteers.

You should be physically fit, willing to work flexibly and possess the necessary ‘tickets’ and/or certificates to operate a range of machinery and equipment. You will be required to work both independently and as part of a team, and will have the energy and enthusiasm to organise and motivate teams of volunteers. Access to a vehicle and a full UK driving licence is essential.

Each post requires an immediate or as close as possible start date, and is a fixed term appointment until March 2023, with possibility for extension beyond the project subject to performance and funding.

All applications must be received by midnight on Sunday 17 October 2021.
We anticipate strong interest in these roles and reserve the right to close this vacancy early if we receive a high volume of suitable applications. We would therefore encourage you to submit your application as early as possible.
