The South Downs National Park Authority (SDNPA) is one of England’s newest National Parks and sits in a beautiful part of Southern England.

You will work on the development of innovative and exciting rainscape (SuDS) projects, including engaging the community and liaising with contractors, as well as planning and fundraising for future rainscapes, with the support of partners and other SDNPA staff.

Liaising with research bodies to establish mutually beneficial and high quality collaborations, you will be helping raise awareness of groundwater protection and interventions to ensure sustainable groundwater resources.

Responsible for the reporting of ChaMP progress, funding and resources on behalf of the partnership, you will also report to identified SDNPA staff and to the ChaMP Steering Group and Project Board.
