Weald to Waves is a visionary 100-mile nature recovery corridor across Sussex. Launched in 2021, we are a land manager-led partnership project coordinated by the Knepp Wildland Foundation. We bring together farmers, other landholders, communities, schools, businesses, councils, and services to create, connect and conserve a ribbon of nature-rich landscape from the forests of the High Weald to the kelp forests of the Sussex Bay. It is a nationally significant initiative, attracting funding and interest from a range of actors with influence over our natural world.
We are seeking a knowledgeable and dedicated Landscape Advisor to join our team. The Landscape Advisor will serve as a crucial link between our organisation and local farmers and land managers, providing guidance on various aspects of agricultural practices. The ideal candidate will have knowledge of the Sussex or southern regional landscape and experience of working with the farming sector. We are looking for someone with an active interest in natural capital, ecosystem services and Nature Recovery Networks.
