What does your role involve?
My role as Head of Land Management is to provide strategic direction and leadership to the reserves team. I work with the team to make sure we are legally compliant with our obligations internally and externally, in areas such as land tenure, animal health and welfare, Safety, Health and Environment (SHE).
How long have you worked for The Wildlife Trust?
I have worked at The Trust for 19 years.
What did you do before?
I worked as a Ranger for Wycombe District Council, this involved working on nature reserves carrying out practical management and working with volunteers.
What made you want to work in the environmental sector?
I have always had an affinity with wildlife and conservation and always had aspirations to work in this sector. I have never worked in another sector and cannot imagine doing so. Everyone in the sector is working towards the same goal so that makes it a very enjoyable sector to work in.
