Job Vacancies


Sorry. We don't have any specific vacancies within the BOT Conservation Team at present. However, if you are really keen to work for us please read on...

Although opportunities in the BOT Conservation Team don't come up very often, we are always pleased to hear from anyone with a keen interest in Barn Owls seeking permanent employment in Barn Owl conservation.

Here's a very brief outline of our ideal Assistant Conservation Officer applicant:
They will have a keen long-term interest in owls and a passion for Barn Owl conservation. They are actively involved in nature conservation and have carried out practical tasks to encourage wildlife. In handling live wild birds they will be both confident and gentle. They have wide-ranging skills including creative writing, public speaking, DIY/woodwork, and practical land management. They are very good with computers (especially database, email and website work) and happy to sit in front of one most of the time. They are physically fit and keen on outdoor work in all weathers - even up a ladder! They are interested in people and will enjoy talking about owls, nestboxes, habitats, and the Trust's work. They are able to give inspirational presentations and will display genuine enthusiasm for Barn Owls and a deep knowledge of farmland bird conservation. They will be just as happy talking to well-informed professionals as getting down on their knees to entertain and inform nursery school children. Above all, they are totally trustworthy and reliable with great interpersonal skills. They are optimistic, enthusiastic about the environment, and far more interested in job satisfaction and happiness than money or material gain.

If you have most or all of these qualities then please write to us now! If you'd rather wait until a job advert appears keep an eye on this web page!
