Species Restoration Officer

About us

The Lifescape Project is a small but growing charity which undertakes projects that protect and restore wild landscapes, helping to provide a future for all life on earth. We focus on ambitious projects looking at new ways to solve complex environmental problems, bringing together the skills and expertise of a multi-disciplinary team. Our projects focus on leveraging five disciplines to protect and restore wild landscapes: science, law, economics, technology and culture.

About the role

We are seeking to hire a dynamic, passionate and experienced Species Restoration Officer to join us and play an integral role in our UK work on rewilding and species restoration, including Eurasian Lynx and White Tailed Eagles (WTE).

You will be in an exciting position, joining our team as we develop and expand our work on these projects, with the opportunity to help shape their future direction.

Working closely with our Lead Ecologist, you’ll be involved in much of the day-to-day work on our projects. You will be applying ecological knowledge to the practicalities of species restoration and rewilding. You may also assist in identifying and pursuing future funding opportunities and will take an active role in developing and implementing communication strategies to publicise the projects.

This position will be remote working and will involve UK and some European travel. 

To be successful, you will:

• Be educated to degree level in ecology/conservation or a related subject or have an equivalent professional qualification.
• Have a minimum of three years’ experience working within the conservation field (which can include MSc or PhD research experience).
• Have proven experience in wildlife restoration and, ideally, translocations and reintroductions.
• Be an excellent communicator, able to collaborate with colleagues and coordinate diverse work streams.

In return, we offer 36 days’ annual leave (28 not including public holidays), additional wildlife engagement leave of two days per annum, an annual Lifescape retreat, full pension, computing equipment, and a likelihood of work travel and conferences.
