National Bat Monitoring Programme - Training Intern

Bats are amazing animals, and an important part of our natural environment. There are 17 breeding species of bat in the UK, all of which are protected by law because their numbers have decreased so dramatically. The Bat Conservation Trust (BCT) works on a number of levels to create a better world for bats. We run a range of different projects and initiatives.

BCT runs the National Bat Monitoring Programme (NBMP), a “citizen science” project that has been tracking changes in bat populations since 1997 through a range of surveys carried out by volunteers.

An opportunity has arisen for an intern to assist the NBMP team in their work this spring.

This is an exciting opportunity in a small, busy charity for those wanting office experience in the conservation sector.

Bat Mitigation Project Officer - Bearing Witness for Wildlife Project

The Bat Conservation Trust (BCT) is proud to be the leading non-governmental organisation devoted solely to the conservation of bats and their habitats. Our mission is to conserve bats for present and future generations. Through education, collaborative action and scientific research, we inspire individuals and organisations to value and speak out for bats. BCT works on a range of different projects and initiatives to achieve this.

It is estimated that 80% of wildlife and habitat loss is as a result of development. This is despite the fact that Local Planning Authorities and Statutory Nature Conservation Bodies (SNCBs) place a duty on all developers to undertake mitigation for impacts on wildlife following the mitigation hierarchy (avoid, mitigate, compensate). Compensatory roosting habitat ranges from the provision of bat boxes (in trees, on buildings or integrated into new builds) through to purpose-built structures to replace bat roosts with very high conservation value.

There are currently no systematic approaches for checking compliance with mitigation measures committed to as part of the planning and licensing processes. What we currently lack at a national level is evidence of (or evidence of the lack of) implementation and monitoring of bat mitigation; evidence identifying where the current processes are succeeding or failing; and updated evidence on effective mitigation measures for bats.

We are seeking a licenced bat worker with knowledge and experience of project management, data analysis, roost inspection, emergence and dawn surveys and a range of bat mitigation methods to work with us on filling these evidence gaps. 

If you have the passion and experience to join our team and help us secure a future for bats and the habitats that support them and wider biodiversity, please download the job description and person specification, and complete an application form via the links below
