Job Details

An exciting opportunity for an experienced project manager to ensure effective delivery of three projects and their outcomes, working with CPRE local groups across England.

Job Title: Project Management Officer
Job ref: PMO
Contract: Fixed term contract until end May 2022
Salary: c. £31,000
Hours of work: 35 hours per week
Department: Campaigns and Policy
Location: CPRE’s London Office, with frequent travel to project sites across England
Reporting to: Rural Communities Enhancement Lead, dotted line reporting to Head of High Value Relationships

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced project manager to work with one of the country’s leading environmental charities, and make a significant contribution to promoting, enhancing and protecting the countryside for everyone to enjoy. You will coordinate national steering groups and oversee the delivery of partnership agreements with several CPRE local groups across England on three fully funded pilot projects:

  1. Supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund, a national natural heritage programme of inclusive audience and volunteer development in two local groups feeds into CPRE’s aim of connecting more people to the countryside, particularly those not benefitting now.
  2. Through extensive outreach work, the provision of national hedgerow resources, including lesson plans, and considerable work from grassroots organisations, local volunteers and hedge layers, this project will contribute towards landscape enhancement in five local areas.
  3. Community renewable energy visioning in rural areas. By engaging with communities at a local level, providing local planning expertise, and encouraging the public to envision what renewable energy should look like in their local landscape, we will enable communities to transition towards a zero carbon way of life.

Whilst at CPRE, you can expect to work with friendly, supportive and experienced colleagues, and have the opportunity to influence and ensure effective delivery of the projects within a specialist rural communities enhancement team. A large part of your role will be gathering and preparing necessary information for funder progress, evaluation and impact reports as well as learning resources and relevant toolkits to disseminate to the whole CPRE network. You will work closely with the high value relationships team to ensure these are accurate, on time and in accordance with funder guidelines. You will be involved in co-designing and planning second phases, during and alongside each project, so that funding is sought to rollout to other areas of the network.

Closing date: Wednesday 5 May 2021
Interviews: Thursday 13 May 2021
