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 a dynamic and enthusiastic Project Manager to coordinate and deliver the programme, primarily in Kent but also supporting project delivery in Essex. Youu2019ll be working with people from across our partner organisations as well as contractors, consultants, local landowners and communities so excellent communication skills and a people-focussed approach are essential.
Proven project management skills are a must for this role and a knowledge of land management for conservation, including an understanding of acquiring consents, the tender process and overseeing groundworks would be beneficial. Most importantly, youu2019ll be highly organised, adaptable and resilient with the energy to deliver transformational change for nature across the Greater Thames Estuary.
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.
