Location: Hybrid (see job description)

Galloway & Southern Ayrshire Biosphere is inviting applications for the post of Nature Recovery Officer.

This is an exciting time to join our UNESCO Biosphere and to make your mark as we develop our Land Use and Biodiversity program, working with a permanent team covering skills in land use, biodiversity, business development, communities, learning, marketing and communications.

Our UNESCO Biosphere designation was awarded in 2012, recognising not only the unique landscapes and environments of Galloway and Southern Ayrshire but also the array of local opportunities for sustainable development.  Over the decade since the Biosphere has delivered a wide range of projects and initiatives with partners across southwest Scotland, covering wildlife conservation, business and enterprise, sustainable tourism, heritage projects, and environmental education.  We have also grown a thriving network of Proud Supporters, Biosphere Communities and Biosphere-certified businesses, which together are working to make life better for people and nature.
