Employment at NRBO in 2016



Full time and seasonal posts have now been filled.


Volunteer Assistant Wardens - we have volunteers for most of the season but still have some openings March-July

These posts are available on the basis of free board being provided in return for defined tasks supporting the domestic and practical management of the Observatory, leaving plenty of time for engagement with all the daily ornithological activities including ringing training for advancement if sought. A well-developed level of identification skills is expected. A minimum 6 weeks commitment is required but preference will be given to those offering longer periods up to and including the whole season March to November.

Please contact Alison Duncan, Principal Warden ( for full details of the posts and application procedure.
