Education and Community Outreach Officer

Be part of a new and ambitious project to reduce the risk of flooding to properties in south London while inspiring communities and educating the next generation in sustainable water management.

We are looking for an engaging Education and Community Outreach Officer to join the SuDs in Sutton’s Schools project (SiSS) which will disconnect 4.5 ha of impermeable hard surfaces from the surface water network by installing a range of Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) located in the grounds of seven local schools. You will work with project partners to facilitate the smooth delivery of SiSS on the ground, engaging the schools in the design process to create SuDS that will be used as a teaching resource to educate children on water management and the River Wandle. You will engage the wider community on water management, particularly how smaller SuDS interventions can be installed at home, assisting them with their delivery, inspiring the local area to become more permeable and create a landscape that is more resilient to climate change.

Project Development Officer or Team Leader

Become a core part of the SERT team designing river and catchment restoration across the South East and make a real difference on the ground.

Working collaboratively alongside other SERT staff, project partners, landowners and stakeholders, you will develop best practice solutions to make a real difference to the river catchments in South London and the South East. The role will involve developing up the detailed design of river and catchment restoration projects, primarily using nature-based solutions, so that they are ready for delivery by Trust staff, partners or contractors. You will work with Trust staff and partners as they identify projects to be developed to address priority issues. You will also work closely with SERT project delivery staff and contractors to ensure smooth delivery on the ground.

The Trust is currently in need of management level staff who will contribute to overseeing the work of colleagues and building teams so that the Trust delivers most effectively. For the right candidate there is an opportunity for these managerial tasks to be taken on by the project development role, and so the position is being offered at either Manager or Officer level.

This is a unique opportunity to become part of the core team at the South East Rivers Trust.
