Since its creation in 1995, the DI has had lead responsibility for the sustainable management of wild deer in England & Wales.  Our independent nature draws together a wide range of public & private organisations with an interest in the various impacts deer have upon our environment.  The Partnership is supported by DI Ltd, a charitable company limited by guarantee. The Executive Director of DI Ltd acts as the Secretary to the DI Partnership.

The Director is responsible for managing the DI Ltd to ensure delivery against all of the objectives set out in the Corporate Strategy against which performance is measured.

  • Leadership & management at a senior level with the ability to develop, manage and motivate teams
  • Working with governmental & non-governmental agencies
