Saving Scotland's Red Squirrels is about to embark on a new phase: the Developing Community Action project will see us put a great deal more effort and resource into engaging with our volunteer networks over the next 5 years.
In advance of our announcement of the start of this new phase, we are recruiting for five additional staff to support this increased activity: a new Conservation Officer for South West Scotland, a Communications and Engagement Officer, a Community Engagement Officer for South Scotland, a full-time Data Officer and an Administrator.
At the same time we are advertising for a Maternity Cover for our Tayside Conservation Officer post.
If you are interested in any of these positions, please follow the link: https://scottishwildlifetrust.org.uk/about-us/working-with-us/job-vacancies/
Over the next five years Saving Scotland’s Red Squirrels will enlist many more volunteers from communities in our three key regions to carry out practical work to protect and strengthen red squirrel populations in their local area, and in turn safeguard squirrels across Scotland.
We aim to provide high quality training and support to hundreds of local people and land managers to take on a vital role in the long–term protection of the country’s red squirrels.
