The Cumbria Project Officer is an exciting opportunity to work as part of a large partnership project, on a beautiful coastline that is highly designated for its conservation value. We are seeking an experienced Project Officer to deliver an ambitious range of dune management activity across ten sites in Cumbria and one site at Fleetwood in Lancashire. You will work closely with landowners, the local community, the Dynamic Dunescapes project team and partners, and the Cumbria People Engagement Officer.

The Dynamic Dunescapes project is a national project that will restore sand dunes across England and Wales for the benefit of people, communities and wildlife. Through our engagement with local communities and visitors we will explain, demonstrate and create opportunities for them to actively contribute towards the conservation of these iconic sites. We will extend this learning beyond the project to ensure a legacy of improved sand dune management and interpretation across England and Wales. Natural England is leading the project, working together with Plantlife, National Trust, Natural Resources Wales and the Wildlife Trusts.

This post is supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and the EU LIFE programme as part of the Dynamic Dunescapes DuneLIFE project (HG-16-08643; LIFE 17 NAT/UK/000570).

Applications should be through Natural England's recruitment system.
