DEADLINE REACHED – we are no longer accepting applications for this post.

Project Manager – Martens on the Move

Vincent Wildlife Trust is looking for an experienced and dynamic Project Manager to oversee the Development Phase and prepare the detailed submission for an exciting new four-year pine marten project being considered by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. The post is initially for 12 months with the prospect of a further four years if the Delivery Phase is approved.

VWT has been a leader in pine marten conservation and research for almost 40 years. Much of this work has focused on understanding the status and distribution of pine martens in Britain and Ireland, developing and trialling innovative field techniques for monitoring pine martens, promoting coexistence with a range of stakeholders and acting as an advisor on and carrying out ground-breaking projects to reinforce pine marten populations in Wales and England.

You would be working with VWT colleagues, specialist providers and project partners on the ground to prepare a detailed project plan for the Delivery Phase of this four-year lottery-funded project. The project aims to facilitate the natural recovery of pine martens where they are recolonising their former range across the Scottish/English and Welsh/English borders through a national programme of awareness raising, advocacy and education. This would involve more localised engagement, volunteer recruitment and training, as well as practical demonstration sites where visitors will benefit from interpretation trails and viewing hides.

We are seeking someone who has proven project management experience, including writing project reports, preparing funding bids and managing funder expectations. You will need to have experience and knowledge of wildlife conservation, excellent interpersonal skills and communication skills, along with experience of working with partners, landowners and other stakeholders.

The Trust offers a quality employment package, the chance for Continued Professional Development, and the learning of new skills and experiences.
