Closing date:
Salary: Salary up to £27,000 pa dependent on experience
Contract type: Permanent / Working hours: Full time
We are in a time of change but also of great opportunity to help wildlife in Suffolk. The post will work closely with landowners to create significant wildlife-friendly areas of land across the county.

The role will lead on environmental advice to farmers, guided by the Trust’s five-year strategy. Significant focus will be on our conservation priorities: farmland birds, watervole, pollinating insects, nightingale, dormouse, amphibians, stag beetle and hedgehog and the habitats needed to support these species.

You will need to develop a landscape scale approach, encouraging contiguous farmers to adopt wildlife friendly methods, such as through agri-environment options or re-wildling, maximising linkages between farms.
