£43,000 to £45,000 p.a. pro rata for 3 days per week negotiable

We are seeking a new Director to build on our success and growth and bring us to the next level of our ambitions, achievements, and delivery. You will have qualities and experience in leadership, strategic management, financial and business acumen, high level partnership engagement and excellent communication, fundraising, project development skills.  A passion for improving our rivers and wetlands is essential. Knowledge and understanding of water, land management and conservation issues would be an advantage.  We are especially interested in someone who can demonstrate the vision and ambition to develop the organisation further.

Essex and Suffolk are rich in their diversity of history, culture, landscape, wildlife, people, communities, agriculture, industry, and the places we call home. Our ecosystems of rivers and wetlands have always played a crucial role in this. They are the veins that bring life and wellbeing to us all. Today, they are under critical pressure from human demands, pollution, and climate change.  Our sustainable future depends on their health. It is the mission of Essex and Suffolk Rivers Trust to ensure this.

We use our expertise, experience, connections, and commitment to work in partnership with many stakeholder organisations and groups to make a real difference in helping to solve the complex problems of river restoration and water management. We believe that working with, not against, nature is the key to sustainability, and we have a proven track record of delivering pioneering nature-based solutions. We draw strength and support as part of a nationwide network of Rivers Trusts.
