OART job recruitmentWe are hiring for an exciting new project....
The Ouse & Adur Rivers Trust has received grant funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund and a wide range of organisations to deliver the Enhancing Places, Inspiring Communities project.
This urban chalk stream restoration project will realign the course of the Broadwater Brook and create complimentary habitat in the surrounding landscape.
One of the aims of the project is to ensure that restoration work is supported by volunteers and the local community and their involvement will assist in enhancing the sites natural heritage and ecological potential. The site will become accessible to the public for the first time, widening access and participation for those who do not currently benefit from local natural heritage opportunities.
Access will include a river trail with heritage interpretation, seating areas and a wildlife viewing hide. Surrounding land use reversion will improve the sites overall ecological function and offer enhanced protection to the new water environment.
A community engagement programme will enable local people to understand, monitor and sustain the projects legacy into the future. The project will inspire children and young people, awakening their interest and involvement in the natural world.
We are now recruiting for two positions within the project team on fixed term contracts until September 2021.
If you wish to apply for either vacancy please download the job specification and fill in the application form, sending it with a copy of your CV and a covering letter to firstname.lastname@example.org by the closing date of 7th November.
