In order to roll out BATLAS 2020 across the Republic of Ireland we are seeking a committed bat worker with experience in working with volunteers and large datasets. We would love to hear from you if you are interested in the BATLAS 2020 Co-ordinator contract position. In addition, we are seeking bat workers to join our panel of regional trainers and surveyors who will be trained in the method and will be contracted to survey their own and adjacent counties from 2016-2018.
