The South East (SE) People & Places Team works with networks and regional partnerships to deliver the SE Area Statement (AS), improving place-based delivery through collaboration, strategy and planning, embedding SoNaRR priorities and championing best practice in engagement, involvement, inclusion and partnership, including delivery of a Gwent Well-being Plan.
This post offers an exciting and challenging opportunity to lead on elements of the interconnected AS themes, with a particular focus on the Climate Ready Gwent theme, our response to the Climate Emergency.
The role will include identifying landscape and regional scale opportunities and collective interventions for climate adaptation and mitigation which enhance local ecosystem and community resilience. The 'Climate Ready Gwent' theme focuses on taking every opportunity to address the root cause of issues and to do so collaboratively as partners, shifting the focus from risk to opportunity and putting communities at the centre.
This post also involves working collaboratively on some of the team’s integrated, cross-cutting workstreams, for example: strategic partnership-working; funding; green infrastructure; active travel; ecosystem resilience; sustainable local food production; development planning; environmental deprivation; data, evidence, monitoring and evaluation; water quality; water resources; access and recreation (including on the Welsh Government Woodland Estate); delivered through the Sustainable Management of Natural Resources.
If you are self-motivated, excited by new challenges, a team-player and have the skills, knowledge and experience to bring innovation and enthusiasm to delivery of the Climate Ready Gwent theme, then you could be the person we’re looking for. This role offers the opportunity to make a real difference to the communities and biodiversity of SE Wales and to shape a more sustainable future for ourselves, our organisation and partners, our communities and future generations.
