This is an exciting opportunity for a dynamic and motivated funding professional to play a pivotal role in the growth of The Nevis Partnership. As this is a new role within the organisation, there will be plenty of opportunity for the successful candidate to creatively develop the fundraising function.
Our mission is ‘to make this cherished area an exemplar of the sustainable approach to managing an accessible and popular Glen and Mountain, conserving and enhancing its landscape, its wild country and its heritage for both resident and visitor alike.’
Key to achieving this will be the development and implementation of the Ben Nevis Fund, a new visitor giving initiative, in partnership with John Muir Trust, Friends of Nevis and High Life Highland as part of a comprehensive and coherent fundraising strategy for our organisation.
The Nevis Landscape Partnership (NLP) are looking to take on 4 x Trainee Volunteer Rangers for a 12-week training programme, starting 18th June 2018. This opportunity will allow motivated individuals seeking experience of the hands-on practice of conservation work and mountain tourism dynamics in a specific context. Key skills will be gained to build towards a career in this field.
The programme will consist of specific core training such as first aid and mountain awareness as well as habitat and monitoring training and relevant environmental based workshops. Work experience will be gained in supporting NLP with their various projects along with the opportunity to network with and potentially support our partners such as Forestry Commission Scotland, John Muir Trust and Highlife Highland Rangers.
