Programme Manager - A Greener Thames
Location: Flexible in England
Salary: £32,400 - £35,944
Duration: 18 months
The Greater Thames Estuary is one of the most important wetland landscapes in Europe, supporting significant populations of migrating and wintering birds as well as a diverse range of rare wetland plants, mammals and invertebrates. Faced with multiple challenges, from the effects of climate change to the pressures of urban development and changes in land use, this landscape is now under threat; vital habitats are deteriorating, and biodiversity is in decline.
With funding from the Green Recovery Challenge Fund and in partnership with Kent Wildlife Trust, Essex Wildlife Trust, Kent Wildfowling & Conservation Association, and Elmley Nature Reserve, the RSPB are embarking on A Greener Thames, a programme of landscape-scale restoration and enhancement across the Greater Thames Estuary.
We are looking for an inspiring and dedicated individual to coordinate and deliver the Greener Thames programme. An experienced people manager with exemplary project management and communication skills, you will have the confidence and tenacity to deliver a complex conservation project that will protect nature in the Greater Thames Estuary now and in the future.
With responsibilities across the project, including leading on the delivery of the programme across the project sites in Essex, the Programme Manager will need strong organisational skills and a flexible approach to their work. From managing the budget and programme schedule, to coordinating partner activities, external communications and identifying and responding to any emerging issues and risks, you will confidently handle multiple priorities and thrive in a deadline-driven environment.
You will work with a large team of staff and volunteers from across the RSPB and our partner organisations. The project has a significant Community Engagement element so the ability to motivate others, to work collaboratively and be an ambassador for the project across the Thames Estuary is essential.
The successful candidate for this role can be based flexibly within England, but will require weekly travel to the project area in the Greater Thames Estuary.
