Do you want to lead development of the Tame Valley Wetlands Nature Improvement Area (NIA) for Warwickshire Wildlife Trust and the Tame Valley Wetlands Landscape Partnership? Are you keen to apply your skills in landscape-scale conservation, partnership work and securing resources, and want to take up a unique opportunity?
The Living Landscape vision is a key element in Warwickshire Wildlife Trust’s new strategic plan, incorporating the Lawton principles of ‘Bigger, Better, More and Joined Up’. Tame Valley Wetlands is the Trust’s first landscape scale conservation scheme in Warwickshire, is designated a Nature Improvement Area (NIA) by the Local Nature Partnership, and is included in the developing wider vision for a National Park across the West Midlands.
We are seeking someone with the passion and knowledge to work on landscape scale habitat and species conservation to make this happen. The Development Manager will lead on the next phase for the Tame Valley Wetlands NIA, following a highly successful 4 year NHLF and partner funded scheme 2014-2018 and previous development since 2005. You will develop Tame Valley Wetlands NIA as a destination for people and wildlife, and raise awareness of the increasing value to wildlife of this landscape area, whilst continuing our core work of habitat restoration and volunteer engagement and training.
A core part of your role will be to think creatively and work together with partners, identifying opportunities to develop and sustain our work. You will work to encourage delivery by partners and stakeholders across the landscape area. You will develop sustainable engagement of people, encouraging local ownership and long term management of habitats.
We welcome applicants from all sectors of the community.
