Anyone Care to be a 'HedgeHog Officer' ?!!

Anyone Care to be a 'HedgeHog Officer' ?!!

Those on the lookout for a career with meaning, look no further. Suffolk Wildlife Trust, a wildlife conservation group based in Ipswich, UK, is seeking candidates for the roll of a 'Hedgehog Officer'!!! It’s not silly as it sounds, as a recent survey found a declining trend in hedgehog numbers.



The hedgehog officer will be looking out for the critters full-time. In addition to monitoring hedgehog activity the responsibility also includes working with local residents to create a street-by-street network of hedgehog accessible habitat.



These "hedgehog streets" will enable the animals to easily and efficiently traverse from garden to garden and establish a network for feeding, nesting, and hibernating across the town. The officer will have to engage 'with a wide range of people' so a certain delicacy when dealing with humans is also essential.



The town with a population of 180,000 prides itself being the most 'hedgehog friendly town in the UK'.  According to the job posting, you can get £24,000 per year or almost £500 a week.



And for those not based in the UK, this seems like the best excuse to move there, BREXIT or not! We recommend boning up on your hedgehog and nature knowledge if you're really going to impress them.
