South East Rivers Trust

Job Opportunities

Join the Trust’s Delivery Team

We are looking to recruit three new members of staff, with differing levels of experience, to our Delivery Team – working on an impressive programme of capital river restoration and habitat enhancement throughout the South East of England. 

Our Delivery Team are integral to the river and catchment enhancement projects at the Trust, working on projects throughout all stages, including conception, development, design, delivery and monitoring. The Team work closely with other staff, external partners and stakeholders to identify projects that address priority issues for rivers and their catchments and facilitate project development and design in collaboration with landowners and other key parties. 

River enhancement projects will typically include weir removals, fish passage easements (such as rock ramps, nature-like bypasses or technical fish passes) and river re-naturalisation projects (such as habitat enhancements, reconnecting floodplains & palaeochannels, re-meandering, and backwater creation). Catchment management projects are likely to include wetland creation, Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) and Natural Flood Management (NFM) measures.
