Job Opportunity: Osprey Project Officer

OSPREY PROJECT OFFICER – Rutland Water Nature Reserve

We are seeking a seasonal Osprey Project Officer for 2019 to work on the Rutland Osprey Project.

After 150 years of extinction in England, ospreys were successfully reintroduced to Rutland Water nature reserve in the 1990s. Today, this local osprey population continues to grow and is helping spread ospreys throughout the UK.

This role provides an exciting opportunity to contribute to this internationally renowned conservation project, co-ordinating the day-to-day running of the project based at the Lyndon Visitor Centre at Rutland Water nature reserve.

If you are a real people person who can passionately enthuse the public about wildlife and conservation, with a flair for writing and communications, this could be the role for you.

Great organisational skills are required, with good computing skills and experience in media and communications work is highly desirable. You must enjoy a busy working environment and possess great drive and initiative. You will have a proven interest in the natural world and a passion for osprey conservation.

This seasonal post is the ideal opportunity for an early-career conservationist, or someone seeking a career change.

A full driving licence and access to own vehicle is essential.
