We are looking for a highly motivated, independent, and dynamic member of staff, with a keen interest in British mammals and a desire to promote evidence-based conservation. We have an excellent and growing social media presence, and the employee will be responsible for continuing this trajectory: an ability to communicate effectively and to write well is vital.
The employee will manage our social media, update our website and liaise with the media. They will also respond to enquiries from the public and society members, where necessary reviewing the literature or seeking expert opinion in order to inform the response. The employee will take the lead in organising dissemination activities such as workshops that bring together academics, practitioners and policy makers, and they will also be involved in proof-reading papers for our online journal and our guidance documents. They will also be responsible for the logistical arrangements for our annual scientific symposium and annual spring conference (working with our Training and Events Manager and our Conference Secretary). Finally they will provide general administrative support to the Chair of the Society and to Council.
The post will be based with Prof. Mathews’s research team at the University of Sussex, Falmer, to start in September 2017. It would be helpful if the applicant were able to spend 2 weeks before 25th August shadowing our current information officer in order to ensure a smooth handover. Reasonable accommodation costs during this period will be met.
