Based near Bridport in Dorset

See downloads below for more details

 

The purpose of the role is to support the Project Director and Team in overseeing and coordinating the development of the Brit Catchment Recovery Project Development Phase (PDP).  

 

The deliverables of this phase are a set of seven plans, covering areas of work from land-use change through to stakeholder engagement.  These plans together set out a viable, coherent and visionary proposition for large-scale improvements to nature over nearly 4,000 ha of land in Dorset over the subsequent 20+ year period.  This will include how much funding is needed to pay farmers for this habitat restoration, and how the changes will be monitored and verified over that period.

 

Specifically, we need a talented and flexible individual to have oversight of the Plan development process, to ensure the links between them are being made, and to ensure that the work is on track, to budget and of a sufficient quality.  This person will be the ‘glue’ that links all the work programmes and the team members together to deliver the overall PDP objectives and will work with team members to ensure that our systems and tools are used effectively.  They will also play a key role in reporting to our funder, so in addition to outstanding people skills we need someone who is highly organised, IT literate, has strong finance skills, and a flexible and agile approach to project delivery.

 

Although having experience of the nature conservation or farming sector is not essential, it would be an advantage as you will need to liaise closely with our Project Partners and other external stakeholders in the sector, as well as the wider community.
