We are looking for a bright and energetic Project Officer to join our West Yorkshire Team to help develop, manage, and deliver a programme of activity in the Wyke Beck Catchment in east Leeds.

We are looking for someone who is flexible, ambitious, and who has a bit of a flair for developing new project ideas. If this sounds like you, this role might be right up your street.

You will be part of a project team with extensive experience delivering projects which are often a mix of habitat restoration or creation, engagement with communities and landowners, feasibility studies and technical field work. You will be working alongside a team from different organisations delivering a wider programme of works in the area. Working closely with colleagues from Leeds City Council, your responsibility will be to help plan, oversee, and deliver natural environment works. Work will help increase Wyke Beck’s resilience to flooding, tackle environmental issues, create habitat along the banks of the river and in the channel itself and position the Wyke Beck LNRs as valued green spaces within their communities.
