​You Can Now Get Paid £20k To Spot Whales And Dolphins

​You Can Now Get Paid £20k To Spot Whales And Dolphins

If you are at one with nature and the idea of getting paid to watch whales and dolphins in their natural habitat sounds like a dream, we have found you just the job.

And not only will you get to watch these magnificent creatures do their thing for a living, you'll get to teach volunteers how to spot and record them, which will help with local marine conservation in the Northern Isles: Orkney, Shetland and Fair Isle.

So in summary, you'll get to watch amazing mammals, including the likes of Orca whales and common dolphin and train up others to help monitor them and you'll get paid £19,800 a year for the pleasure.

The job, funded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund only asks thats you're passionate, you have some experience with directing volunteers and you're willing to work five out of seven days a week (which might include some weekend work).

You can work predominately from home, except of course when you'll need to travel to Shorewatch locations - you can't spot those whales from home after all!

The job advert reads: "Based within the local community, you will deliver outreach events which offer the community engaging ways to learn about local whales and dolphins and inspire action to protect them.

"You will also work closely with local stakeholders with extensive experience of local volunteering and conservation priorities and lead a stakeholder Steering Group to advise the project."

The idea of the job is to ensure Shorewatch becomes as established in the Northern Isles as it is on other areas of the Scottish coastline, so that the presence and absence of whales is well recorded, to help protect their long term future.
