Applications are invited for the posts of Green Infrastructure (GI) Project Manager and Green Infrastructure (GI) Officer, within the Countryside and Wildlife Team of Neath Port Talbot CBC.  The Countryside and Wildlife Team is a multi-disciplinary team, dealing with countryside access, biodiversity conservation and project delivery and provision of ecological advice.  We have secured funding from Welsh Government through the Enabling Natural Resources and Well-being Grant to deliver the South West Wales Green Infrastructure Project, a partnership project with Swansea Council, Carmarthenshire County Council, Coed Lleol and Cwmaman Town Council.  This is a multi-disciplinary project, taking a strategic approach to the maintenance, enhancement and creation of green infrastructure and biodiversity resource, for the benefit of people, the economy and wildlife.  It should be noted that a formal offer for the grant is pending, but is anticipated prior to interviews being conducted.

 

The Project Manager will be responsible for supervision of the GI Project Team and project delivery in Neath Port Talbot, and ensuring the grant requirements are met across the region.  The GI Officer will lead on making improvements to green infrastructure throughout Neath Port Talbot, Swansea and Carmarthenshire, working closely with partners and stakeholders in the design, implementation and ongoing maintenance of any such initiatives.  

 

The post holders will be expected to work with a range of partners and stakeholders, and to build on working relationships within the organisation(s) to further the aims of the project.  The post holders will need a good understanding of green infrastructure, and its related disciplines, whilst the GI Officer will also need the knowledge and skills to be able to design and implement innovative new GI schemes.

 

This is an ambitious project and we are looking for two motivated individuals with strong engagement and communication skills.  The Project Manager, in particular, will need to be highly organised and competent in delivery of grant funded projects, with the ability to take a strategic and visionary approach to future delivery of green infrastructure beyond this current funding round. 

 

Candidates must also have the ability to travel to site and to attend meetings as necessary.
