Applications will be welcomed from those with work experience in the environmental, habitat management or ecological fields, who are willing to work outdoors undertaking physically demanding activities, but who also have experience working in a laboratory environment and interacting with students, staff, visitors and/or volunteers within these contexts. Preference will be given to those with relevant outdoor technical experience in management of habitats and plant growth facilities such as glasshouses.
