  • Group income protection and death in service benefits (for pension members)
  • Employee Assistance Programme
  • Enhanced maternity, paternity and adoption policies
  • Learning days
  • All staff are eligible for free admission to our nature reserves and visitor centres.

The posts require an understanding of the aims of conversation grazing, a flexible and pragmatic approach to the varied demands of the role and good communication skills. Experience of livestock management and husbandry would be advantageous.
