Two great job opportunities in two of the loveliest parts of Scotland

Saving Scotland's Red Squirrels is looking to fill two Project Officer posts.

The first is a full-time post  in Aberdeenshire, to head up the very successful project there as it moves into an exciting (but challenging) phase.

The second is  a three-days-a-week post based on Loch Lomondside, in a critical area for work to protect Scotland's (and the UK's) most extensive "red-only" squirrel populations covering all the forested land of the Highlands, Grampian, Argyll and northern parts of Stirling and Tayside.

Each post would suit  an experienced countryside worker looking to join a major well established species conservation project.
