In addition, you will also play a key role in assisting colleagues to increase and deepen our relationships with volunteers and partner organisations to support individuals and communities to protect their local wildlife, through trialling new approaches and sharing best practices across the organisation.

You will help recruit and be responsible for the management of a small team of skilled volunteers to support the delivery of this area of work in the four UK countries.

  • Educated to degree level or equivalent in a relevant discipline e.g. Environmental or Planning
  • Knowledge and understanding of planning legislation, policy and practice in the UK
  • Proven project management skills

  • Initiative and judgment to resolve problems independently and ability to find creative solutions
  • Experience working in a cross-organisational multi-disciplinary team to develop and deliver shared vision, objectives and outcomes
  • A good track record of consistently delivering results on time, creating the energy and urgency to motivate others to contribute as required
  • Experience of working with volunteers
