Professional Adventurer

Join the adventure of a lifetime!

Full time

From Invergeldie (Perthshire), to Manor Farm (Norfolk), to Cornwall, and the Highlands.

As our site lead, you will play a pivotal role in reshaping traditional land management into a strategic opportunity for sustainable practices and environmental conservation.   

We want to show the world how modern conservation can be delivered. With opportunities across the UK, we’re searching for individuals to spearhead the transformation of these incredible landscapes and take the reins in rewriting the narrative of land management. 

Each site will undergo significant natural capital creation and improvement that is most appropriate to that area. This may include peatland restoration works and native broadleaf woodland creation. We also explore the opportunity for renewable energy projects, both wind and solar, to help in the global fight against climate change.  

You will be the key interface between the central Oxygen Conservation team and key local suppliers, tenants, and wider local community. This role may see you supporting the development of unique ecotourism offerings and/or the (re)development of homes for the local community. No day will be the same, but each will be an adventure.  

Closing date: 03/03/2024

The adventurer we're looking for:

Do you want to work incredibly hard for people and wildlife, and be able to look back in the years to come knowing that what you did helped in the fight against climate change and biodiversity loss?  Do you want to make a meaningful positive impact at a landscape scale? We are looking for someone (and potentially their family) to make a long-term commitment to one of our sites, making it their home and becoming part of a wonderful local community. Specifically, we’re looking for: 

 

  • Passionate Explorer: Fuelled by a passion for adventure, environmental conservation, and making tangible impact. 
  • Environmental Expertise:  Knowledge in environmental science, conservation, or related fields, acquired through education or hands-on experience. 
  • Exemplary Communication: Exceptional verbal and written communication skills, capable of representing Site and Oxygen Conservation with professionalism and positivity. 
  • Hands-on Experience: Perhaps experience in land management, conservation, or related domains. 
  • Innovative Problem Solver: Ability to think innovatively and creatively to implement sustainable practices and resolve challenges. 
  • Collaborative Relationship Builder: Ability to build collaborative relationships with diverse stakeholders, including landowners, farmers, partners, neighbours, contractors, and regulators. 
  • Exacting Standards: Sharp eye for detail and a deep commitment to delivering exceptional service. 
  • Commitment to Growth: A dedication to continuous personal development and fostering growth within the wider team. 
  • Kindness and Approachability: And of course, you have to be really nice! Sharing snacks on long journeys or a packed lunch whilst out in the rain is mandatory!

We are committed to having a genuinely diverse team drawn from across the country, with a wide range of lived and learnt experiences. You might have skills in some but not all of the areas above.

Our interview process - what to expect

We hire people that are the best at what they do. And just as important as it is to discover if you're a good fit for us, you need to determine if we are a good fit for you.

1Apply

This is the first step to becoming part of the team. Simply click the ‘Apply Now’ button to complete our application form, and show us how awesome you are!

CV’s are needed, but on their own we don’t feel they tell us enough about who you really are. So, we have listed just a couple of questions to allow us to learn more about you.

2Opportunity to Shine

If your application is successful a member (or two) of the team will have an introductory call with you, to answer any initial questions you may have. After which, if successful, we will set an exciting role specific challenge for you to complete in advance of your interview. An opportunity for us to see you shine.

3Interview

We hate for this part to be too corporate and regimented. Instead, we will have a relaxed conversation to get to know one another, an opportunity to ask questions and learn more.

We recognise that this process is two way and that you will be interviewing us perhaps even more than we will be interviewing you – we promise that it won’t be a dull process.

4Decision

We will invite you to meet more of the team so you and them can explore the realities of being a part of Oxygen Conservation. If our passion for what we do aligns with yours and we think you’ll be a great addition, we will invite you to join our growing team. If you love what you’ve learnt we hope you will accept, to be a part of our mission to Scale Conservation.
