Come and join our friendly team at SERT.


Natural Capital Coordinator

We are recruiting a Natural Capital Coordinator to deliver PROWATER; an exciting European-funded partnership project aiming to address the impacts of climate change and enhance the availability of raw water for people and the environment. 


You will coordinate and lead the activity of partners in the South East of England, working closely with Kent County Council, water companies and landowners. Working in partnership, you will contribute to the development and delivery of the project’s six work packages looking to take a Natural Capital approach to water resource management, creating and demonstrating a Payment for Ecosystem Services model for the region and ultimately securing a more resilient water supply for future generations. 


The Natural Capital Coordinator position is a new role within SERT, breaking new ground for the Trust while playing an integral part of the PROWATER project.  This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic individual to join a growing organisation delivering high quality river and catchment enhancements based on an ecosystem approach, and make the first Payment for Ecosystem Services scheme for water resource management in the South East of England a reality.


The deadline to apply is Friday 24th August 5pm and interviews will be held on 12th and 13th September 2018. To find out more about the role, what we are looking for and how to apply, please download the Job Description below.

Cleanup Event Contractor


Our Wandle Cleanups are hugely popular, as they provide the community with a safe and enjoyable way to engage with their local river while making a visible and positive difference to the environment. Last year alone, the Trust’s cleanup events attracted 540 volunteers who collectively spent over 1600 hours removing 50 tonnes of rubbish from the Wandle to improve the river for both wildlife and the local community.


SERT is looking to recruit a freelance contractor to organise and deliver our Wandle Cleanups on the second Sunday of every month.
