A Bird Aware Solent ranger talks to a member of the public

Do you care about wildlife, have a flair for public engagement and proven experience in content creation?

Bird Aware Solent is looking for a ranger to join its friendly and passionate team. Bird Aware Solent rangers raise awareness of the importance of the overwintering coastal birds within the three Special Protection Areas (SPAs) and encourage responsible recreation on the Solent coast.

Content creation

The focus of this role will be to enhance Bird Aware Solent’s outreach engagement by working alongside our communications lead to create relevant content for digital, broadcast and print media for a diverse audience.

Communication channels include social media, online engagement, website content, blogs, broadcast and print media, and video creation. As well as creating content you will develop an understanding of the platforms on which we should be focusing our resources.

Face-to-face communication

All rangers also patrol the coast throughout the winter providing a positive and engaging presence with all user groups, including dog walkers.

This means you’ll need to have excellent face-to-face communication skills and be especially confident in striking up good rapport with people of all ages and backgrounds so you can encourage behaviour change.

You must have a driving license and use of your own vehicle for work.
