The Role/About You

We are recruiting for a talented manager to lead our programme of science and monitoring. This is an excellent opportunity to help shape the future of the award-winning Moors for the Future Partnership.

You will develop new opportunities and innovative ways of providing the vital evidence for the effectiveness of all strands of our work and will lead the team that collects it.

Our ideal candidate will be educated essentially to MSc level, preferably with a PhD, with expertise in the science of upland ecosystems with a focus on peatland. You must be an excellent team player and be able to work as part of the management team who deliver an integrated programme on behalf of the Partnership.

A large part of your role will be to develop new business, from small grants to major funding applications. Experience of fund raising and grant application, working in collaboration with others, is a must.
