Project Manager – Connecting the Culm

This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced and innovative Project Manager to lead one of eight regional delivery projects across the UK and Europe, as part of an EU Interreg 2 Seas Co-Adapt (to climate change) Programme.  The regional project is entitled Connecting the Culm (CTC).

You will be required to co-ordinate and oversee the practical delivery of the project outputs, largely through managing large contracts. Two of these contracts will be for full-time specialists in Nature Based Solutions and Co-creation. Co-creation is a key thread through the Co-Adapt Programme and this ethos will be expected to be embedded across the partnership, both locally and across UK and EU partners as well as with local communities and the landowning community.

You will be an excellent communicator willing to share and learn across the Co-Adapt partners and beyond. Using your innate ability to horizon scan, you will lead the co-creation of a 25 year Blueprint for the river Culm catchment that looks past the end of Co-Adapt and forms part of a toolkit, embedding adaptive and resilience planning into the plans, strategies and priorities of decision makers and other stakeholders, underpinned by a growing movement of community advocates who actively engage in the future of their catchment.
