The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park boasts a wealth of wonderful places to explore and enjoy. Its stunning coastline offers safe, sandy beaches ideal for families, hundreds of miles of footpaths, as well as rugged cliffs and secluded rocky coves.

A unique and exciting opportunity and has arisen for a Pollinator Warden within the Countryside Management Team to co-ordinate and lead on the pilot Pollinator, Paths and People Project, which focuses on improving the management of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path for pollinators and invertebrates.

• Developing a pollinator plan for the National Park’s estate and rights of way network and proactively working with partner organisations, community groups, community representatives, landowners and the Third Sector to ensure ongoing positive public engagement with all aspects of the Pollinators, Paths and People Project.
• Providing support for existing coastal grazing projects through undertaking works to improve path and pollinator management in these areas.

The ideal candidate will have:

• Knowledge of ecology and habitat management, particularly relating to plants, invertebrates and pollinators and practical experience of habitat management including the use of machinery for vegetation control.
• Experience of writing reports and site management plans, particularly relating to biodiversity and experience of delivering training to a diverse range of staff.
