Fancy A Career Change? This Could Be The Cutest Job EVER


If you're looking for a job with the feel good factor, you might just be in luck. There's a call for someone to be the new face of hedgehog conservation, and it's made us feel pretty warm and fuzzy inside!

This new job post could seriously shake up your working week. Who wouldn't want to cuddle up with hedgehogs on a daily basis? Ok, well not cuddle up exactly, but you'll be getting pretty close and personal with the cute woodland creatures if you win at this job interview. 

A charity is advertising for a nature enthusiast to look after a whole town's hedgehogs community. Could this be the cutest job in the world?

There is one catch – anyone considering applying for the job will have to relocate to Ipswich, but if a move is on the horizon anyway, what better way to do it than building up your very own hedgehog fan club?

The successful candidate will be paid £24,000 a year to be the new 'face of hedgehog conservation'. Sounds pretty impressive. 

And they will be expected to use their knowledge of hedgehog ecology 'in an ambitious project to make Ipswich the most hedgehog-friendly town in Britain', according to the Suffolk Wildlfe Trust.

Applicants should have 'experience of ecological surveying as well as developing community-based conservation activities and engaging effectively with a wide range of people,' according to the job ad.

Ipswich has been identified as a hedgehog hot spot, but with the rising number of houses, roads and gardens, the hedgehog's natural habitat has been threatened. The successful candidate's job will be to 'create a street by street network of hedgehog-accessible habitats and monitor their activity'.

The ad continues: 'Reaching out to communities across the town you will be the face of hedgehog conservation leading hands-on community activities, training events to raise awareness of the needs of hedgehogs and the opportunity to turn around their fortunes in Ipswich.'

In short, you'll be the hedgehog representative for the whole of Ipswich, fighting to keep them safe and ensure their home is a happy one. Anyone else inspired to apply? 

But if you don't get the job, you can still do your bit for hedgehog conservation. You can build nesting sites out of piles of leaves so they can set up camp in your garden, or you could dig a hole in your fence so that hedgehogs can burrow through freely from garden to garden.
