Reserves Officer (West of Surrey)

Salary £22,000 to £28,000 pa (dependent on experience)

Do you enjoy the challenge of enthusing others about nature and have experience in leading volunteer groups and managing contractors? Maybe you also have some experience or involvement in managing native deer species?

If so, we would love you to join our expanding Reserves Management team as we look to recruit a unique role within our department.

This role will be within our West Team which covers a suite of lowland heathland managed sites on behalf of private landowners, including the Ministry of Defence (MoD). The additional focus for this combined position is to support the delivery of the Red Deer Project within the MoD owned Pirbright Ranges and the associated management requirements of the site.

The work of a Reserves Officer is diverse and varied. Predominantly working outdoors, no two days will be the same. This includes leading volunteers and contractors to ensure required works across our land are undertaken in line with approved management plans and to meet our statutory and contractual obligations. Our Reserves Officers work together across three geographical areas to manage projects and create links with local communities - an ability to adapt and manage a diverse portfolio of work is essential.

Having some previous experience of successfully working with volunteers and the ability to inspire others in nature conservation is essential. Knowledge and understanding of working to management plans and agri-environment schemes would be advantageous.

An out-going, approachable and friendly personality with the ability to work with a wide range of people is essential, coupled with a passion for the joy of nature.

The job will involve being outdoors undertaking practical tasks for most days of the year and a driving licence is essential as our locations cannot easily be accessed by public transport.

We are committed to having an inclusive and diverse workplace and encourage applications from backgrounds which may be underrepresented in our sector, including people from minority ethnic backgrounds and people with disabilities.  We aim to offer an interview to all candidates that meet the essential criteria for the post. Please let us know if you require any adjustment to make our recruitment process more accessible.

Please apply using the Application Form on our website or send a covering letter and CV to Victoria.pinder@surreywt.org.uk by latest midday Monday 9th October 2023. Candidates will be interviewed as applications are received so please apply early to avoid missing out.

Guided by a collaborative vision where we all play a part in connecting nature, we provide expert advice and guidance to landowners and managers, making sure the land we look after leads by example, while inspiring and educating people and organisations across the county on what they can do. By doing this we will create a Surrey that is full of diverse and abundant wildlife, where nature is at the heart of individual choices, corporate decisions, and local economic and policy making. One that helps tackle the ongoing climate emergency, while supporting the health and wellbeing of all who live here.
