Can you help us make Nottinghamshire’s water better for wildlife?

Severn Trent Water and the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust are working in the River Idle Catchment to tackle pollution in watercourses. An important part of this programme is to work with farmers to reduce diffuse agricultural pollution into watercourses and to tackle water quality in Severn Trent’s drinking water boreholes in the area, as well as helping to develop and deliver innovative habitat projects that will benefit our wetland wildlife.

If you have a minimum of 2 year’s experience as an agricultural advisor, a relevant degree, experience of providing pollution reduction advice to farmers, a strong background in understanding water quality issues and a sound understanding of lowland farming and wetland ecology, we would be very interested to hear from you.
