How to Apply

The Torridge, one of Devon’s principal river catchments, is suffering long term chronic decline driven by diffuse agricultural pollution. The Torridge River Restoration Project is an ambitious, integrated programme of advisory and capital works interventions. Working with landowners, it aims to restore the water quality and ecological health of two extensive priority areas – the upper and lower catchment – covering more than 22,000 hectares. Devon Wildlife Trust is the lead partner for the project, working with the Environment Agency and contractors within the Northern Devon Nature Improvement Area. It is funded by Defra’s Water Environment Grant through to September 2021.

We are seeking an experienced and knowledgeable farm advisor for the project. They will work with landowners to deliver capital interventions on land, bringing water quality and other benefits to the environment. They will advise on practical projects and work with landowners and contractors to deliver these successfully, on time and to budget.

This is a part-time (22.5 hours per week) fixed term appointment until 30 September 2021, based at DWT’s Cookworthy office in North Devon with frequent farm visits.  We are offering a choice of two working patterns – Monday to Wednesday or Wednesday to Friday to be agreed with the successful candidate.
