We have a very rare opportunity to recruit a new Reserves Manager to lead on the conservation management of fourteen fabulous wildlife reserves in the predominantly rural counties of South Lanarkshire and Dumfries and Galloway of Scotland, including one of our flagship sites; Falls of Clyde Wildlife Reserve, where the post holder will be based.

With line management responsibilities for two staff, the successful candidate will co-ordinate all practical habitat conservation work, including designing and delivering externally funded projects to be implemented by staff, volunteers and contractors. This will involve working closely with statutory bodies, partner organisations, landowners, Scottish Wildlife Trust members, and the public.

A key role is to advise other Trust staff on woodland management; small scale forestry operations, marketing timber products, felling and planting plans with a view to demonstrating innovative and pioneering habitat management.

You must be qualified to degree level or equivalent in countryside management, conservation forestry or similar discipline and be able to demonstrate your achievements and extensive experience in practical conservation management and species monitoring across a range of habitats.

The successful applicant will have excellent knowledge of conservation/land management issues, have strong line management and project management skills and be able to operate as a lone worker and as part of a team. A current driver’s licence is essential, as is a willingness to undertake travel, and the occasional overnight stay or weekend working.
