Job Opportunity: Project Development Officer at South East Rivers Trust

Monday, November 27, 2017

The South East Rivers Trust (SERT) is an environmental charity dedicated to achieving healthy river ecosystems, for all, across the South East of England (including parts of South London, Hampshire, Berkshire, Surrey, East Sussex and Kent). The Trust's mission is to deliver outstanding river ecosystem enhancement through science-based action, collaboration, education and engagement. SERT has recently expanded its area of coverage having grown out of the Wandle Trust. The Trust is a member of the national Rivers Trust and is part of the rivers trust movement which is described as having 'wet feet' because it concentrates its efforts on practical improvement works on the ground. The Trust's core values are central to all it strives to achieve, including bringing positive energy, expertise and specialist knowledge to develop good relationships and deliver to a high standard to make a real difference on the ground.

SERT is recruiting a project development position which is being offered at either Manager or Officer level, dependent on experience. Working collaboratively alongside other SERT staff, project partners, landowners and stakeholders, you will develop best practice solutions to make a real difference to the river catchments in South London and the South East. SERT is also currently in need of management level staff who will contribute to overseeing the work of colleagues and building teams so that the Trust delivers most effectively. For the right candidate there is an opportunity for these managerial tasks to be taken on by the project development role, and so the position is being offered at either Manager or Officer level.

The position is initially being offered as a one year fixed-term contract but is expected to be extended as further funding is secured. This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic and knowledgeable individual to join a growing team to deliver high quality river and catchment enhancements and make a real difference on the ground.
