Assistant Project Officer
SERT is seeking an Assistant Project Officer who be heavily involved in developing and delivering a programme of river restoration and habitat enhancement projects across the South East of England.
Working within the Trust’s Delivery Team, you will assist with developing and delivering river restoration and habitat enhancement projects, working on projects throughout all stages including conception, development, design, delivery and monitoring. You will work closely to support the Catchment Team with identifying projects that address priority issues for catchments and facilitate project development and design in collaboration with landowners, stakeholders and other key parties.
River enhancement projects will typically include weir removals, fish passage easements (such as rock ramps, nature-like bypasses or technical fish passes) and river re-naturalisation projects (such as habitat enhancements, reconnecting floodplains & palaeochannels, re-meandering, and backwater creation). Catchment management projects are likely to include wetland creation, Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) and Natural Flood Management (NFM) measures. We would be interested to know about any experience you have in the above fields when you apply.
This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic individual who is keen to gain more experience in river and catchment enhancement work in order to make a real difference to the aquatic environment. You will be joining our growing team and contribute to our portfolio of ambitious and bold projects based on sound science and best practice. This will be a valuable opportunity to shadow experienced staff in order to build your experience and knowledge of river processes, restoration techniques and ecology.
We are also recruiting Project Officer and Senior Project Officer positions to the Delivery Team.
Applications are due 30th August, with interviews taking place 10th and 11th September.
