Do you want to lead development of the Tame Valley Wetlands NIA for Warwickshire Wildlife Trust and the Tame Valley Wetlands Partnership?

The Living Landscape vision is a key element in Warwickshire Wildlife Trust’s new strategic plan, incorporating the Lawton principles of ‘Bigger, Better, More and Joined Up’.

You will develop Tame Valley Wetlands NIA as a destination for people and wildlife, and raise awareness of the increasing value to wildlife of this landscape area, whilst continuing our core work of habitat restoration and volunteer engagement and training.

A core part of your role will be to think creatively and work together with partners, identifying opportunities to develop and sustain our work. You will work to encourage delivery by partners and stakeholders across the landscape area.
