About us

At Natural England, we advise the UK Government on the natural environment. We’re here to make sure people and nature can thrive. From advising farmers on sustainable land management to gathering and analysing environmental data and promoting health and wellbeing through the great outdoors, we love what we do. Join us and you’ll be part of an inclusive, motivated and ambitious team, committed to achieving results for our environment and for everyone.

About the role

As our Lead Advisor for Nature Recovery, you’ll provide crucial advice and support across our Nature Recovery projects. Our work plays a significant role in safeguarding and enhancing our natural environment, primarily through delivering evidence-based advice to the Government as well as project management and communications.

Stakeholder management is a core part of your duties, as you’ll build relationships to secure better environmental outcomes. You’ll also nurture partnership work and support on procurement, reporting and budget management.

On top of this, you’ll be joining us at a particularly exciting time in our history, as we help deliver the Government’s 25-year Environment Plan, an ambitious range of projects designed to achieve positive environmental outcomes for generations to come.

About you

You’ll have a good knowledge of the environment, relevant legislation, the environmental value of designated sites, and the Government’s 25-year Environment Plan.

Just as much, we’re looking for excellent communication, collaboration and partnership building skills. Good judgement and solid organisational skills are also important.

About our benefits

We welcome and encourage applications from all communities and, wherever possible, we accommodate requests for both full and part-time hours and other flexible working patterns. Everyone at Natural England is supported to develop their skills and capabilities. You can also look forward to great benefits including a Civil Service pension.

If you’re inspired to protect and enhance England’s wildlife, and want to work for a leading science-led organisation, apply here.
