Reference number: OGRby-9
Location: Flexible in Central and Eastern England

Salary: 48,848 to 52,919
Hours: Full time
Contract: Permanent


We are seeking an Area Manager to provide the strategic leadership for delivery of the RSPB's mission across the East Midlands, from the wet grasslands of Otmor in Oxfordshire, through the ancient trees of Sherwood Forest, to the uplands of the Peak District. This will include direct accountability for all reserve, conservation, project and learning delivery which will be part the area team.


This area contains an amazingly diverse range of habitats, including wet grassland, ancient woodland and upland moorland. There are major opportunities to work in partnership to deliver huge conservation gains, as well as leading some of our most signifiant visitor operations. In addition to the leadership of the area, as part of a cohort of Area Managers working to the Operation Directors, this post may be expected to play a wider leadership role including taking on responsibility for areas of work on behalf of the wider region or country.


In order to effectively deliver strategy, the Area Manager will also have an important externally facing role with a need to influence and build relationships and partnerships with relevant partners, stakeholders and decision makers.


The Area Manager will line manage Senior/Site Managers, Senior/Conservation Officer and any relevant Programme or Project Managers.


Although not line managed by the Area Manager, there will need to be support from the country-lead functional teams (eg communications and fundraising) in order to deliver the strategic objectives in the area. The Area Manager will be expected to work with relevant country colleagues as part of the business planning process to ensure the work of the area and functional teams are aligned.


Closing date: 20 September 2019
