Join a team which is improving local rivers
East Anglian rivers are a great resource for leisure – walkers, photographers, anglers and canoeists to name a few – and for wildlife. They are also essential water sources for drinking and for agriculture. But our rivers are not always as healthy as they should be, so our mission is to improve them and to educate people in how important this is.
Formed in 2013 we are an organisation with a practical emphasis on projects.
The Essex and Suffolk Rivers Trust (ESRT) is proud to have been formed under the umbrella of the national Rivers Trust. Much of the work of ESRT will be taking forward projects to help implement the EU Water Framework Directive as it applies to England.
We have a very exciting opportunity within the ESRT team:
Project Support Officer
Salary: £18,000 – £20,000 pro rota, per annum depending on experience.
8.0 hours per week. Fixed Term for three months initially
Location: Based in Ipswich
We are seeking a highly enthusiastic and dedicated Project Support Officer to provide support to our Project Manager. You will be working on our European Union and other funded projects, which aim to improve local rivers for all. www.essexsuffolkriverstrust.org.
The Project Support Officer will provide administration and marketing support for the Essex and Suffolk Rivers Trust, supported by the Project Manager.
The successful applicant will have a proven track record in administration and marketing along with partnership working with Trustees, stakeholders and funders. You will have experience of maintaining effective monitoring and recording systems, invoicing, managing accounts and ideally EU funded delivery. You will have an understanding and interest in environmental issues, including those affecting river catchments.
