Course writers | Conservation Science (remote)


We are seeking remote course content writers, assessors and tutors in the subject area of Conservation Science.

Science underpins and informs conservation interventions across the globe. Often undertaken within an academic setting (but not exclusively), it involves a logical, methodical and rigorous approach to work.

Science and Research also offer one of the clearest career paths within conservation sector. These are often highly-trained professionals who have secured a Degree, Masters and PhD, and then worked on a series of short-term (1-3 year) ‘Post Docs’ to finally secure more long-term tenured employment in a university or similar. This isn’t the only career path into science and research (many NGOs and Government bodies employ researchers), but it’s a common one.

Typical early-career job titles in this area include Field Assistant, Research Assistant and Science Officer, and they cover the following duties: Undertaking scientific research (including desk, lab and fieldwork).
Literature reviews of available research.
Analysis of data.
Managing time and budgets.
Communicating results to a range of audiences.

We’re seeking experienced professionals working in this area to develop a UK course syllabus and associated materials which outline the key topics, and help people take a solid first step towards a fulfilling career in this area.

Applicants must be experienced and qualified in the topic, and assessors must hold an assessors/ teaching qualification. An IQA qualification would be an advantage.

We operate a completely flexible remote working model. Working on a self-employed Contract for Services basis, the role initially involves course writing. Once live, you’ll have the opportunity to also be involved and tutor students, assess work remotely via our online training portal.

You will be responsible for organising and managing your own workload to a deadline whilst maintaining the highest level of standards.

Each of our subject areas is faculty driven and whilst self-employed you will have direct contact with a Head of Faculty to support with the learner caseload allocations.

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of our national tutor team and the learndirect brand, so if you think you can make a difference for our students then please apply by submitting your CV to
