(Salary – 19,000-21,000 depending on skills and experience)

We require two seasonal bird surveyors to be based in Scotland.

Applicants will be birders and will ideally have carried out bird surveys such as Vantage Points, Breeding Bird Survey and Raptor Surveys.  It is however far more important to display a sound knowledge of birds both by sight and call as training in survey methods will be given.

The ideal candidate will also be willing to carry out bat surveys and mammal surveys as required.

You will be physically fit, own a car, and be willing to work ‘ecological hours’. This will involve overnight stays away from home and travel throughout Scotland. Flexibility, enthusiasm and initiative are essential qualities we need the applicants to have.

Qualifications such as ESAS, MMO or IEEM would be desirable. You must also be computer literate and numerate.

This is a 6 month contract initially with the prospect of an immediate start for the correct candidates.
