Cambridgeshire ACRE has a vacancy for an experienced Project Manager to lead the successful delivery of its new National Lottery Heritage Fund-funded project, New Life on the Old West.

The role will firstly involve working closely with project partners, contractors and stakeholders to successfully deliver a raft of planned habitat enhancements across a range of sites, including securing land access, obtaining any consents required and overseeing all works. The second key aspect of the role will involve supporting the successful delivery of a planned community engagement programme of training and volunteering, citizen science, public events and learning activities to engage a diverse audience in the project activities.

We are therefore seeking an experienced project manager, capable of working with multiple partners to deliver this complex three-year project. Knowledge of biodiversity and experience of the delivery of habitat enhancements is crucial, as is experience of working with landowners, community groups and volunteers and of employing biodiversity monitoring tools and techniques and analysing data.

The ability to develop excellent relationships with landowners, parish councils, natural heritage groups, volunteers and local community groups will be key to flourishing in this role and the successful candidate will also need to work closely with the Project Steering Group and Technical Biodiversity Group so that partner inputs are effectively utilised to enhance project delivery.

Further job information and a job description for the role is available to download from the Resources and Downloads area on the right hand side of this page, as is the application form you will need to complete to apply.

The closing date for applications is 8am on Monday 5 October 2020. Initial interviews will be held via Zoom videoconference on Wednesday 14 October so please ensure you can be available via this method on this date when applying.
