Do you wish to bring about environmental change on a monumental scale? We have a fantastic chance for a project manager to create a cutting-edge wetland creation project at the size of a landscape.
What’s the role about?
To create a Landscape Recovery Project in and around Frampton Marsh, Lincolnshire, the RSPB has received funding from DEFRA. We will have two years to investigate how we might aid and finance nature’s recovery on more than 1,500 hectares of land with the help of our project partners.
For the project’s development phase, we are hiring a new project manager. Read on if you appreciate diversity! In this position, you will be responsible for managing contractors and outside consultants, leading and inspiring the project team to stay on track, communicating with important stakeholders, such as the project partnership, and ensuring that the project produces the best results for the environment.
For this work, you don’t need to be an expert in birds or other wildlife—we have plenty of people who can assist you there! We do, however, require you to be passionate and enthused about doing all you can to assist us in addressing the twin problems of the environment and the climate. You’ll participate in our effort to motivate and enlist people in building a more natural world where birds and other species flourish for the good of everybody.
The Community Engagement Officer and Administrator for the project will report to this person, who will be in charge of line management.
What we require of you
To establish cooperative working relationships with our partners, RSPB teams, and external stakeholders, you must be well-organized, flexible, and adaptive with strong communication skills. Whether or not you are line managing them, you still need to be able to inspire and drive others to accomplish their goals.
To guarantee that things go well and risks are handled and to help resolve issues if they emerge (since projects rarely go without a hitch! ), you will need to be an expert at managing project procedures.

We are dedicated to creating a diverse and inclusive RSPB where everyone can feel supported, appreciated, and free to be who they truly are.

We are especially interested in receiving your application if you identify as a person of color and/or a disabled person.
