Dundreggan Rewilding Centre Director (Maternity Cover)
A unique and one off opportunity has arisen to work on the development of our flagship Dundreggan Rewilding Centre as the Centre Director. This is a fixed term role (maternity cover) for 12 months, with the possibility of a 2-3 month extension subject to conditions.
We are welcoming applications from those wanting to join the team as an employee, with consideration for those who are self employed contractors. The successful candidate will be based within travelling distance to Dundreggan and initially be working at site one day a week, with this increasing to 3-5 days a week as building work draws to a close. Flexibility and a driving license are essential for this position.
Based in one of the Highlands’ most beautiful landscapes, the successful candidate will be working towards implementation of a pre-existing work plan to ensure the smooth opening of the Rewilding Centre, a £6million project which is the next stage of the charity’s ambitious plans. You will have a background in tourism and ideally, nature based tourism, demonstrating the ability to draw in audiences, develop activities and schedules with the centre’s Education Manager and also recruit a team of staff who also share our vision.
A large part of this position involves managing key external relationships, including funding organisations who support the capital and operational expenditures of the Rewilding Centre. These may include the National Lottery Heritage Fund or the Natural and Cultural Heritage Fund, led by NatureScot and part funded through the European Regional Development Fund, which both provide funds for the Centre Director role.
