Senior Project Officer (Restoring Rivers & Catchments) x2

South East Rivers Trust

Do you have experience leading, designing and developing projects to improve the environment,
our rivers or river catchments? We have an exciting opportunity for two people to come and join
us as a Senior Project Officer on a permanent basis.

The South East Rivers Trust is an environmental charity bringing rivers and their catchments
back to life. Working in 12 river catchments across the south east of England, the Trust
connects communities and mobilises citizen scientists to educate and engage people on the
importance of rivers, and supports and challenges stakeholders, businesses and individuals to
protect them. The Trust uses data and evidence to target positive action and works with nature
to make rivers healthy again. This includes tackling water pollution, addressing water
scarcity, reconnecting rivers and restoring habitats.

Working at the South East Rivers Trust is rewarding, fulfilling and busy. We work
collaboratively and with passion, and this is reflected in our core values of: delivering high
quality work, using expertise and scientific understanding, building good and effective
relationships and bringing positive energy to all we do. If this sounds like an environment
that you would thrive in, we would love to hear from you.

We lead on a range of exciting, challenging and fulfilling projects which vary significantly in
size, complexity and type. No two projects are the same. We often have the opportunity to
direct and mould them into novel, bold and ambitious schemes which are directed and/or
monitored with a science-based approach. The projects will typically cover natural flood
management (NFM), water resource management, fish passage including weir removals, easements or
fish passes, wetland/backwater creation and in-channel habitat improvements such as the
introduction of large wood and gravel through to re-channelling works.

The Senior Project Officer roles offer an exciting opportunity for an experienced and
knowledgeable individuals to oversee all stages of river and catchment enhancement projects,
from conception to development, design and physical implementation. Working in the Restoring
Rivers and Catchments Team, you will use your proven ability to lead on our larger projects,
ensuring that they are delivered on time, on budget and to a high standard. We encourage
creative thinking to come up with exciting, ambitious and novel solutions with the possibility
to put your own stamp on the project. The role will require you to manage, delegate and work
collaboratively within the Trust and with external partners, stakeholders and professional
services to identify and deliver meaningful and impactful projects for the benefit of the
environment and communities.
