Overview

As someone with a history of delivering successful projects and advocacy this is a fantastic opportunity to shape the future of our planet by helping create an environment where people and nature can thrive.

We are facing a climate and nature emergency. Nature, our life support system, is being lost at an alarming rate and we have a short window to reverse this. Our UK Seascapes team is working to make this happen by delivering exemplar seascapes and nature-based solutions that can be used as a blueprint protecting and restoring ocean ecosystems.

As Ocean Restoration Project Officer, you will be part of a dedicated team working to realise our new seascape strategy. This will involve supporting the delivery of seagrass restoration projects as well as aquaculture and seaweed farming development work. We will look to you to provide the science and learnings for advocacy work to create an enabling policy environment to scale up restoration. You will help develop and coordinate restoration work in projects to revitalise coastal habitats, such as saltmarshes too. You will also identify new funding opportunities and other innovative projects as well as assist with the drafting of funding proposals and bids and much more.

Ideally a graduate in a relevant discipline, you must have experience of delivering successful projects. You will have a good understanding of marine biodiversity and habitats, climate mitigation as well as adaptation and social issues in relation to land and water management too. Comfortable matrix working, you will be used to coordinating place-based projects and supporting delivery teams. Familiar with managing large and complex budgets, you will also possess excellent networking, communication and influencing skills.
