Thames21 is offering a rare opportunity for an experienced project manager to lead the implementation and development of an established river restoration programme.

If you have a track record in delivering river restoration and/or habitat improvement projects, working with consultants and contractors and in partnership with multiple public and private partners we would be interested in hearing from you. You will be technically strong and adept at managing complex budgets and reporting to funders. You will have confidence and credibility, and be able to engage and influence a variety of stakeholders.

In recently years Thames21 has been working with a wide range of partners to develop a number of river restoration projects. This has been very successful and in 2019 a number of these projects move into the delivery stage. We’ve also got a number of other projects which have successfully gained funding and we are looking to develop and implement them over the next 2-3 years. Current projects which this role will be delivering include restoring in the region of 6km of river and 5ha of wetlands. Finally we’ve also identified a number of other projects in early development stage which we plan to develop over the coming years to a point whereby we can implement them. In time we see this role expanding both in length of the contract and role to include the management of a small team, developing and delivering river and wetland restoration projects across and surrounding London including urban and rural catchments. This will be dependent upon the successful candidates preference.

This role is a key position to implementing a wide range of programmes throughout Thames21’s Improving Rivers Portfolio and developing this portfolio to significantly improve the rivers and catchments we work on. This work will include working with a range of partners specific to projects and associated agreement.
