THE TRUST The Sussex Wildlife Trust is a conservation charity for everyone who cares about nature in Sussex. We focus on protecting the wonderfully rich natural life that is found across our towns, countryside and coast.  By working alongside local people we create opportunities for us all to connect with nature and for nature to thrive in even the most unlikely places. Together we can make sure that future generations living in Sussex will be able to enjoy the sense of wonder and well-being that nature offers.   THE ROLE We are looking for an experienced Grazing Manager to oversee Sussex Wildlife Trust’s livestock management and grazing operations. The role is responsible for ensuring our site management objectives are delivered for our nature reserves through our grazing operations, and ensuring we meet our animal welfare and legal obligations for our livestock.  In addition we want someone to work with our Director of Land Management to proactively review our current grazing systems, and recommend and implement any required changes to ensure we constantly strive for best practice in grazing systems. The Grazing Manager will line manage the Assistant Grazing Officer(s), and will work alongside our Reserve Managers to help us to look after some of the most special places for wildlife in Sussex. THE PERSON You will be highly experienced in managing livestock, with substantial understanding of legal and welfare processes surrounding grazing for nature conservation objectives. You must be able to prioritise and manage significant complex work programmes for example including managing animal health testing, and have attention to detail for example in maintaining good and consistent recording systems.  You must be prepared to travel across Sussex on a day to day basis sometimes outside of core hours, and spend significant periods of time outside in all weathers. THE BENEFITS Based at Southerham near Lewes, this role offers 24 days annual leave, access to an Employee Assistance Scheme and the opportunity to help the Sussex Wildlife Trust make a real difference to local wildlife.
