Come and join our friendly team at the South East Rivers Trust and work with partners in a new flagship project on Natural Flood Management in Kent.

We are seeking a dynamic individual and a natural leader to become our Natural Flood Management Coordinator. This new role will identify, plan, implement and monitor natural flood management measures, targeting them so that they contribute to a reduction in flood risk. You will initially focus on the upper catchment area of the River Medway in Kent, but will have the scope to extend beyond this area as work progresses.

Through this project you will also have the chance to travel within Europe to share lessons learned on creating flood resilient societies through the FRAMES project, funded by the European Union European Regional Development Fund North Sea Region Programme.

The South East Rivers Trust is an environmental charity dedicated to achieving healthy river ecosystems, for all, across the South East of England. The Trust is a part of the national Rivers Trust movement which is described as having ‘wet feet’ because it concentrates its efforts on practical improvement works on the ground. The Trust’s core values are central to all it strives to achieve, including bringing positive energy, expertise and specialist knowledge to develop good relationships and deliver to a high standard to make a real difference on the ground.

Through this role, you will work with a range of organisations and partners and communities in the Medway catchment and help to facilitate the work of the Medway NFM group and Medway Catchment Partnership.

This is a very exciting new role which you will have the potential to build into a significant new area of activity for the Trust.
