Can you help us make water better for wildlife? Based in Shropshire (3 Posts), Worcestershire, (part Gloucestershire) (3 Posts) and Warwickshire (1 Post)

Severn Trent Water and the West Midlands Wildlife Trusts are working with the Environment Agency and other partners on river catchments to tackle pollution in watercourses across catchment areas and to bring them into good ecological condition. An important part of this programme is to work with farmers and landowners to reduce diffuse agricultural pollution into rivers and streams and to tackle water quality in Severn Trent’s drinking water boreholes in the area.

These posts have been designed to deliver a programme of advice, training and grants to farmers and land managers to reduce diffuse water pollution in 6 catchments. This programme aims to reduce pesticide and nutrient concentrations in surface water with farmers on a voluntary basis.

If you have a relevant degree and a minimum of two years’ experience of providing pollution reduction advice to farmers and landowners, a strong background in understanding water quality issues, lowland farming systems and wetland ecology, we would be very interested to hear from you.

A full driving licence and your own vehicle will be required as the post holder will often need to travel within and out of the county they choose to apply too. Some weekend, Bank Holiday and evening working will also be required.

This post is full time, commencing February 2018 until the end of March 2019 with the possibility of an extension.

Applications must be received by 9am, 1 December 2017; Interviews will be held on 11th or 12th December, 2017.

Strictly no agency or further advertising enquiries will be accepted for this post.
