This is a fantastic opportunity for a highly motivated individual to work within a broad partnership of conservation, community and protected landscape organisations to work on a national flagship project for a highly threatened species. You will make a significant contribution to the delivery of a fully integrated landscape scale nature conservation and community engagement programme. 

Devon Wildlife Trust, on behalf of the Devon Greater Horseshoe Bat Partnership, has secured funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund for the delivery of this project.
