Suffolk Wildlife Trust

Planning & Advocacy Manager

Salary: £32,000 - £34,000 according to experience

Contract type: Permanent / Working hours: Full time

Location: Brooke House, The Green, Ashbocking, Ipswich, Suffolk, IP6 9JY

Suffolk Wildlife Trust’s vision is a wilder Suffolk, where nature is thriving and abundant, because everyone is doing more to help. Enabling others to play their part in nature’s recovery is central to the Trust’s approach and this role reflects this.

This is an exciting and challenging new role working within the Conservation Department and was created with a recognition that we needed to increase our capacity and ability to work with and influence key stakeholders and developers in light of theEnvironment Act and the Dasgupta Review.

You will work with the County Council and Local Authorities to help them meet their commitments under the act, create traction via Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG) as well as working with the Wilder Landscapes Manager to help develop a robust Nature Recovery Network (NRN) across Suffolk.

You will provide leadership on our commitment to ensuring planning and development does not impact on protected sites or on nationally and regionally significant populations of protected species. Leading on specific Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects (NSIP) developments, you will ensure they deliver on BNG and add positively to the NRN.

The role will head up campaigns to protect Suffolk’s wildlife in the face of threats such as from development and pollution and you will be one of the public faces and voices of the Trust, to stand up for nature that is under threat.
