We are seeking remote course content writers, assessors and tutors in the subject area of Marine Conservation.

As conservation on dry land is maturing, there has been an explosion in jobs within the marine environment within recent years. It’s a diverse area of work and requires all the skillsets of those across the industry as a whole.

The roles are diverse and growing, and include job titles such as Marine Support Officer, Marine Assistant and Assistant Marine Ecologist. These typically involve the following sorts of duties:

  • Working on marine ecology, marine protected area or biodiversity assessment and management.
  • Literature reviews and data collation from existing sources.
  • Species identification both on surveys and from underwater video and still photographs (underwater surveys).
  • Planning and participating in marine surveys, inshore and offshore.
  • Analysing marine ecology data sets and presenting results.

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
