Water Resource East (WRE) is looking for a Programme Manager
Water Resources East, The Nature Conservancy, Norfolk County Council and Anglian Water have formed a unique and exciting strategic partnership focusing on water management across the county of Norfolk. The partnership is looking to recruit a Programme Manager to lead the creation and development of a county Sustainable Water Management Strategy and associated Water Fund through to the end of September 2022.
Norfolk is impacted by a range of water-related issues, including falling ground water levels, abstraction pressures, housing and business development, water quality and flooding, and there is a need for an overarching strategy to address these issues. With funding from Norfolk County Council and Anglian Water, the Programme Manager will oversee the development of a detailed Sustainable Water Management Plan, including the identification of opportunities and quick wins as part of Covid-19 recovery, and will coordinate the establishment of a partnership structure known as a “Water Fund” to facilitate delivery of nature-based solutions for water management in the medium and long term.
The closing date for applications will be Wednesday 27th January and interviews will be hold (via Zoom or similar) in early February. Applicants can send their CV and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org, marked for the attention of Kirsty Goddard-Holmes. For more info about the position click here.
