Set in a vast landscape of ice-hewn mountains, spectacular pinewoods, tranquil lochs, and wild, rushing rivers, Cairngorms Connect is the largest habitat restoration partnership in Britain. Cairngorms Connect has bold plans to make this inspiring place better for wildlife, and better for those who take joy from the wildlife and beauty of this extraordinary place. The project will expand the Caledonian pine forest to its natural limit, reinstate drained wetlands, naturalise rivers and restore huge tracts of peatland, to create an amazing place for nature - a home to eagles, wildcats, pine martens, ospreys, black grouse, ptarmigan, otters and curlews.

We are looking for new team members who will contribute to the delivery of the restoration project, to extend deer management into higher and more remote parts of the project area and to help expand native woodland and montane scrub communities - ensuring we achieve our ambitious habitat restoration objectives. If you have the skills, experience and competencies to deliver this kind of work, we would love to hear from you.
