Working Pattern: Permanent Full Time
Location: Tollard Royal, Wiltshire, SP5 5QA

Here at Cranborne Chase National Landscape, we’re looking for an important addition to our small but dedicated team based just outside Tollard Royal, on the Wiltshire-Dorset border. Whilst the legal term remains ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’, all AONBs will be known as ‘National Landscapes’ as of 22nd November 2023.

Cranborne Chase National Landscape is a nationally designated landscape and hosted by Wiltshire Council. As Nature Recovery Officer you’ll consult widely with multiple stakeholders to finalise our Nature Recovery Plan, prepare the Delivery Plan and guide its implementation on behalf of the National Landscape Partnership. This post will move from being office based to begin with, to being much more delivery focussed.

You’ll have appropriate qualifications and considerable years of experience in environmental management, nature conservation or ecology/agroecology, have proven experience of developing and delivering management plans. The ability to utilise GIS (ArcPro) would be helpful. You’ll also need to be an enthusiastic ‘people person’ who is used to working closely alongside and through farmers, landowners, local communities and other stakeholders. Developing close working relationships and partnerships with relevant organisations will be key to delivering the National Landscape’s Nature Recovery Plan, as will having a keen eye on funding opportunities. Proven experience in preparing funding bids would be an advantage. You’ll also represent the National Landscape and positively input to the ongoing development of a major ‘Big Chalk’ initiative in the south of England alongside many other collaborative projects as appropriate.

If you relish a challenge and you are a team player with passion, initiative and self-motivation then we’d love to hear from you.
