Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

Nature Recovery Officer

Here at Cranborne Chase AONB we’re looking for a special addition to our small but dedicated team based just outside Tollard Royal, on the Wiltshire-Dorset border. As Nature Recovery Officer you’ll consult widely with multiple stakeholders to finalise our draft Nature Recovery Plan, prepare the Delivery Plan and guide its implementation on behalf of the AONB Partnership.

You’ll have appropriate qualifications, training and some considerable years background in environmental management, nature conservation or ecology/agroecology, have proven experience of developing and delivering management plans and be highly competent in the use of GIS. 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 AONB’s Nature Recovery Plan, as will having a keen eye on funding opportunities. Proven experience in preparing funding bids would be preferable. You’ll also represent the AONB and positively input to the development of a major ‘Big Chalk’ initiative in the south of England alongside other collaborative projects as appropriate.

You’ll have the full support of a small but dedicated AONB team based in a stunning location in the heart of the ancient royal hunting forest from which the AONB takes its name.

Teamwork is the name of the game here hence working from the office is key, allowing cross-fertilisation of ideas and working from home the odd day, is the exception rather than the rule.

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