The Shropshire Hills AONB Partnership is recruiting to this key post in our small team, leading work on nature recovery, biodiversity and ecosystems. 

Working with a wide range of partner organisations, you will develop and manage delivery projects as well as providing strategic advice, support and input where needed. You will take forward our developing work on peatlands and headwaters, woodlands and trees, climate change and on specific areas including the Clun and Teme catchments. We have an unusual learning and development opportunity, as you will work for some months alongside our longstanding Natural Environment Officer until his retirement.

You will also have a role in commenting on planning applications and other consultations in relation to natural environment issues.
