We are looking for someone to take up this fantastic opportunity to develop a key element of Butterfly Conservation’s new strategy - a Global Butterfly Index. To play our part in meeting the challenge of the biodiversity and climate crisis at a global scale, we will collaborate with partners to create the Global Butterfly Index; to drive action and advocate for change.  

You will report into our UK Butterfly Monitoring Scheme Programme Manager in the Evidence and Policy Directorate.  You’ll be expected to demonstrate diplomatic skills and be able to influence a wide range of internal, UK and international stakeholders.  This will play a vital role in helping to build Butterfly Conservations’ international partnerships.

In the last decade we have been building our international work, particularly in Europe and through our quadrennial International Symposia. As a founding member of Butterfly Conservation Europe, we are partners on several ongoing projects including the European Butterfly and Moth Red Lists and SPRING: Strengthening Pollinator Recovery through INdicators and monitorinG. We also have a European volunteer branch – the European Butterfly Group, which is active in recording and threatened species work. 

This is an agile working role, and we welcome applications for remote working, with travel to our UK Office in Dorset and overseas as required. Therefore, you will require the ability to work effectively independently, as part of a virtual team, and under pressure to meet challenging deadlines.

If you are excited about the prospects of working for a leading wildlife charity, please read through the attached job description and person specification to see if you have the right skills to join the team.

If you are interested in the role and want an informal chat please contact Russel Hobson, Director of Evidence and Policy via rhobson@butterfly-conservation.org

Closing date for applications is midday Monday 4th April 2022. Interviews will be held on Wednesday 13 April 2022.

Candidates must have the right to work in the UK. No agencies please.
