Role Purpose

Natural resources in Wales are fantastic - rugged mountains and woodlands, beautiful landscapes, rivers, coastlines, and amazing wildlife.

They are vital for our survival and provide us with the basic things we need to live: clean air, clean water, and food. They create jobs for thousands of people like farmers, foresters, and tourist operators, creating wealth and prosperity.

They give us all a better quality of life and opportunities to enjoy the outdoors against a backdrop of Wales’ natural beauty and heritage. People come from far and wide to experience them. They are intrinsically linked with Welsh culture and language.

It’s our job in Natural Resources Wales (NRW) to look after these natural resources and what they provide for us: to help reduce the risk to people and properties of flooding and pollution; to look after special places for well-being, wildlife and timber; and to work with others to help us all to manage them sustainably. The people who work here in NRW have the knowledge, expertise, and passion to help make the sustainable management of natural resources a reality.

The role

We have an exciting opportunity to join the Integrated Workforce team in South East Wales. You will be working with a team that is passionate about the works they carry out.

As a member of the team you will carry out maintenance activities, using chainsaws, brush cutters and larger items such as Robo Mowers, that help to deliver capital work projects on the ground. These activities could include working on flood risk assets like flood embankments and keeping our rivers clear of blockages that could increase the risk of flooding. You would also carry out work on assets on other NRW managed land.

A key element of the role is to be part of our emergency response capability, where you will be trained to be the NRW’s first responders to flooding incidents. You will be required to be part of a standby rota and provide out of hours cover.

Closing date: 6th December 2020

Benefits: Civil Service pension, 28 days annual leave, rising to 33 days over 5 years, flexible working options, occupational health including counselling and advisory services and eye care, childcare vouchers and salary sacrifice schemes.
