The role will suit a natural leader and good communicator who is personable, diplomatic and passionate about rivers; a good level of river enrichment technical knowledge will also be required. Initially offered as a 15 month (home working) fixed term contract, it is hoped that this would be extended subject to funding being secured. This is an exciting opportunity to make a real difference to the environment.


The Partnership currently has 23 partner organisations that work in collaboration to deliver a variety of catchment-based projects, including river enhancements, monitoring, volunteer events, education and engagement, etc.


The two major projects will also play a significant role within the landscape and management of the Crane catchment in the next few years/decades, namely Thames Water’s ‘Smarter Water Catchments’ (of which the Crane is the urban pilot catchment), and the proposed Heathrow Airport third runway expansion, which will have a considerable impact on the Crane catchment. The Development Manager, along with other parties, will have a notable role in both.


The Crane catchment has been included as the pilot urban catchment for the Thames Water ‘Smarter Water Catchment’ approach, which will start in 2020 with the commencement of the seventh Asset Management Period (AMP7). The Development Manager will work closely with Thames Water and the other CVP partners to prepare for project work to commence once AMP7 start.


The proposed Heathrow Airport third runway expansion plans will also impact the Crane catchment significantly.


This post is responsible for the strategic development, expansion and implementation of the Crane Valley Partnership and to support the Partners in the core objectives of the Partnership:

  • To raise awareness and support action for conservation, restoration and new approaches to design and management of the River Valley.
  • To help communities take a sustainable approach to managing and improving the River Crane and its tributaries.
  • To improve and protect the biodiversity of the area.
  • To maximise the use of the river corridor as a resource for healthier living and educational activities for local people.
  • To promote connectivity along the river corridor.


The successful candidate will work across the Crane Catchment with partner organisations to develop, fundraise and enable delivery of agreed priority projects and themes in order to deliver a better environment for people and wildlife across the Crane Catchment.
