Become a Wildlife Ranger on Idyllic Island Off Scotland Coast With Free Cottage to Live in
A wildlife ranger is being sought for an idyllic island off the north coast of Scotland—and a free cottage to live in is included.
The Scottish Wildlife Trust is looking for someone to take over the position of Handa Island Ranger on the remote island off the coast of Sutherland in the Highlands.
The successful candidate will be treated to stunning sandy beaches, spectacular views from the 394-feet-high cliffs, and getting to know the 100,000 breeding seabirds living on the island.
Handa is so small it only takes two and a half hours to walk around, but the candidate will need a driver’s licence and a vehicle to make weekly trips to the nearest village, Scourie, over on the mainland.
Those interested will need to have a good knowledge of the local marine and terrestrial natural history, excellent people skills, and organizational abilities.
The six-month fixed term contract is from March to September 2022, and pays £17,290 ($23,458) FTE per annum pro rata.
Applications opened last month and are due to close on January 17 at 2pm–if you’re looking for a wild adventure, it sounds like it’s time to get applying.
