Elephant and Small Elephant Hawk-moths

We believe our work has never been more important.

Wildlife is in steep decline across the UK and over three-quarters of butterflies and two-thirds of moths are declining. We recognise it needs a great team with a wide variety of skills to tackle the problems facing butterflies, moths and the environment.

Our staff and volunteers are proud to be part of Butterfly Conservation and are dedicated to making a difference to the environment we live in. We understand the importance of maintaining and expanding our expert and valued team of people and offer a range of roles located all over the UK, from the peat bogs in Scotland to the post room in Dorset.

Butterfly Conservation has formed a partnership with Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH), Amphibian and Reptile Conservation, The Bat Conservation Trust, Bumblebee Conservation Trust, Buglife, Plantlife and RSPB Scotland to develop an exciting new programme of work, Species on the Edge (SotE), to safeguard a suite of nationally and internationally important species around Scotland’s coasts and islands. Working collaboratively, the partnership aims to deliver an ambitious four and a half year programme of work to create an enduring legacy for Scotland’s environment.

Funded by National Lottery Heritage Fund (NLHF), we are seeking an enthusiastic individual with experience of developing or delivering projects in the conservation sector to undertake the development work required to build the second stage NLHF application.  For further details on this unique opportunity, please read our Job Pack below.
