Ox-Cambs Vision Coordinator

Berks, Bucks & Oxon Wildlife Trust (BBOWT)

Littlemore, Oxford and/or Meadow Farm, Near Bicester
£18,000 pa pro rata (FTE £30,000)

Paid • Part Time • Fixed Term Contract


Sectors: conservation & wildlife, environmental policy & campaigning

Closing date: Wednesday, 3rd October 2018  

Can you organise multiple organisations and stakeholders to support the creation of a ground-breaking vision? Do you have skills in areas of project planning, communications, administration and advocacy?

We are looking for a coordinator to bring together as many non-governmental organisations (NGOs) as possible to support a vision for nature between Oxford and Cambridge. There is severe pressure on the area; the expressway is currently being consulted on, which will support the creation of one million houses. It is time that the environmental sector stood up and said this is what’s going to be needed to ensure nature thrives and so do people.

You will coordinate input from leading conservation NGOs who have already come together to agree that a vision needs to be created. You need to be able to juggle multiple parts of a project by having demonstrable project management skills. You will need to have experience of the conservation sector and knowledge of planning and environmental legislation, so you can get started on the work immediately. You will manage a budget and report to a steering group. Experience of working at a high level within an organisation would be beneficial.

This challenge would suit a knowledgeable and passionate individual, who wishes to work part time on a project that really could inspire and shape the landscape of the South East.

Contract: 1 year fixed term, 21 hours per week
