Location: Thames21 Head Office, Central London/Bow Locks Office, East London/Home Working/On site across the Thames Basin
Responsible to: Catchment Partnership Development Manager and Head of Improving Rivers.
We are recruiting an enthusiastic and committed individual as a river Catchment Partnership Development Officer to help deliver integrated improvements for rivers, wildlife and people. The successful applicant will sit in a team of 6, which between them host or co-host 10 catchment partnerships across the Thames Basin as part of the wider Thames21 Improving Rivers team. This post provides an exciting opportunity to develop Thames21’s role as a Rivers Trust to bring together the delivery of a hosted Catchment Based Approach (CaBA) Partnership. Building climate resilience for future generations in our capital city, this post will focus on working closely with partners across all sectors to develop, and help secure funding for, on-the-ground projects to improve the health and condition of the blue/green corridors in line with the relevant catchment’s catchment action plan.
Purpose of the job
This post is responsible for the strategic development, expansion and implementation of the catchment-based approach to river, wetland and catchment improvements. The role involves hosting a CaBA Catchment Partnership group, and working with partner organisations to develop the partnership through the delivery of four priority themes: –
• Engaging community and stakeholder groups to build the partnership
• Development of river and valley improvement projects leading to delivery
• Fundraising for river and valley improvement projects.
• Sharing information and bringing people together in a way of working that is catchment wide, cross boundary and between multiple organisations.
Working with partner organisations the successful candidate will develop, fundraise and enable delivery of agreed priority projects and themes to deliver a better environment for people and wildlife. The successful candidates will take a lead on their own river catchment, however it’s important that they are also prepared to work as part of the wider Thames21 catchment partnership team with each team member playing to their strengths and supporting the other officers deliver work in the other catchments.
