Wicklow Uplands Council (WUC) with the participation of the Wicklow Deer Management Partnership (WDMP) invites applications for the role of a part time Project Co-ordinator who will be responsible for the implementation of a new three year Deer Management project in Co Wicklow.
Wicklow Uplands Council (WUC) works for the sustainable use and enjoyment of the local landscape in partnership with those who live work and recreate there. WUC members are also actively involved with, and members of, the Wicklow Deer Management Partnership (WDMP). The WDMP is a common interest group and the only one of its kind in Ireland. WDMP is comprised of a number of key stakeholders, including farmers, private landowners, private woodland owners and hunters along with representatives from Wicklow Mountains National Park & Coillte. WDMP stakeholders all share the common goal of achieving a collaborative solution to the responsible, sustainable, management of wild deer populations throughout County Wicklow and adjoining areas, at levels which are in balance with agriculture, forestry, hunting and environmental objectives. WDMP is also represented on the Irish Deer Management Forum, the national body for implementation of deer management objectives.
WUC and the WDMP have recently been successful in winning a tender for The Provision of Deer Management in County Wicklow. This is a three year project with funding provided by the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (DAFM) and the Department of Culture Heritage and the Gaeltacht (DCHG). The objective of this project is to put sustainable deer management within the county on a more professional basis and to facilitate and promote knowledge transfer within the county and wider area.
A detailed project management plan has been drafted showing clearly the various steps/stages in the process including timelines and milestones for delivery, the number of days for each task, arrangements proposed for quality control of the outputs/ deliverables and project management and leadership arrangements.
WUC is now seeking to engage a part time co-ordinator to manage the project. The co-ordinator will operate under the supervision of a steering group comprised of members WUC and WDMP who will provide technical expertise and advice. The project co-ordinator will have significant responsibilities for the implementation of the project.
It is important to note that the successful applicant will not have any direct role in deer management or culling. The successful applicant will however be responsible for the implementation of the Deer Management Project as proposed in the WUC and WDMP tender application, a copy of which is available upon request.
