The Norfolk and Suffolk, Thames Solent and Wessex Area Teams are each looking to appoint a Freshwater Senior Adviser to provide technical advice, lead our Team’s in-year delivery, strategic planning and thinking about the role of our freshwater work in delivering our Nature Recovery ambitions across our teams.

This role will be central to shaping our Area Team culture by role-modelling our values and championing new ways of working to enable us to implement the government’s ambitious 25YEP and our vision for Nature Recovery.

The successful candidate will contribute to our team planning and reporting against the Greener Farming and Fisheries programme and will be required to work closely with other Senior Advisers contributing to this programme, and the wider leadership team including Team Leaders and Managers.

You will play an important role in setting our team priorities for all staff working on our freshwater agenda for the coming year, monitoring our progress, identifying in year risks and putting in place mitigating measures, and helping us to be agile in our response to new opportunities as and when they occur.

A priority task for our new post holder will be to build our commercial offer, ensuring we move work to a chargeable basis where appropriate so we can build a resilient and self-funding service for water companies and other key customers/stakeholders.

We will expect the successful candidate to demonstrate a flexible and adaptable approach working across our remit and taking on new areas of work as the team needs change.
