We are seeking remote course content writers, assessors and tutors in the subject area of Countryside Management, Warden & Ranger.

Being involved in countryside management means working on the practical side of conservation, and getting your hands dirty. There are two important aspects of managing sites – the habitat and the visitor access. Habitat could be grassland, wetland, woodland etc. For the access management there’s the footpaths, signs and gates alongside the health and safety of a site.

Typical conservation job titles in this area are Assistant Warden, Assistant Ranger, Countryside Ranger, Park Ranger, Estate Worker and Reserves Officer, and their duties include:

  • Managing sites in accordance with the management plan – habitat and site work.
  • Welcoming visitors and providing a good customer experience.
  • Writing and updating the management plan.
  • Preparing, administering and controlling income and expenditure budgets for projects.
  • Working with contractors and volunteers.

We’re seeking experienced professionals working in this area to develop a UK course syllabus and associated materials which outline the key topics, and help people take a solid first step towards a fulfilling career in this area.

Applicants must be experienced and qualified in the topic, and assessors must hold an assessors/ teaching qualification. An IQA qualification would be an advantage.

We operate a completely flexible remote working model. Working on a self-employed Contract for Services basis, the role initially involves course writing. Once live, you’ll have the opportunity to also be involved and tutor students, assess work remotely via our online training portal.

You will be responsible for organising and managing your own workload to a deadline whilst maintaining the highest level of standards.

Each of our subject areas is faculty driven and whilst self-employed you will have direct contact with a Head of Faculty to support with the learner caseload allocations.

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of our national tutor team and the learndirect brand, so if you think you can make a difference for our students then please apply by submitting your CV to lucycox@animalcoursesdirect.co.uk
