What’s your role in nature’s recovery?

We are looking to expand our conservation team to help us deliver a series of exciting floodplain and river projects that help to support healthy habitats, wildlife, and ecosystems. You could be a part of our dedicated team proactively working to secure nature’s recovery in Staffordshire.

We have an exciting opportunity for individuals with experience with ecological restoration and creation, particularly with wetland habitats. By utilising Nature-based Solutions (NbS) you will create a more biodiverse environment and help restore functional wetlands, maximising ecosystem services and future-proofing the floodplain landscape for nature and communities. Our work involves collaborating with a variety of stakeholders, funders and partners across the county to deliver both ongoing work and new projects.

Our organisation’s strategy focuses on key priorities including climate change mitigation, flood resilience, and bringing nature into recovery to accomplish our vision of a thriving county with wildlife at its heart, which everyone enjoys, values and wants to play their part in protecting and improving.

Successful applicants will be invited formal interview, where we will discuss how this role may be right for you.
