Jobs

Want to join the team and make a real difference?

We are looking for the best project managers, officers, conservation and engagement specialists to join us and form the Back from the Brink team. It’s going to take a while to fill all the posts, across 10 organisations, but to succeed we will need to work closely sharing knowledge, networks, expertise and make the most of each other’s’ strengths. If you want to embrace this journey as we inspire others and bring threatened species back from the brink, then we’d love you to join the team. Here you can see the posts we intend to recruit over the next 6 months.

Invitation to Tender:  Evaluation Services 2017-2021

Back from the Brink is an innovative project to save our rarest and most threatened wildlife such as grey-long eared bats, pine martens, crayfish, willow tits and field crickets.  We are looking for a team of consultants or a consortium to help us effectively evaluate the impacts of this landmark project and to feed into its legacy.  There will be three distinct roles:

  • External evaluation
  • Training and mentoring
  • Quality Assurance

Each of which will entail evaluation of impacts in two broad disciplines:  species recovery and people engagement.

The full Invitation to Tender is here – closing date 1 August 2017
