Blue Carbon Technical Officer
As someone with expertise in delivering successful large scale Blue Carbon projects and research this is a fantastic opportunity to shape the future of our planet by helping create an environment where people and nature can thrive.
We are facing a climate and nature emergency, in the ocean as well as on land and as a member of the team in the world’s leading independent conservation organisation, we want you to play a key role in our Blue Carbon initiative, created to ensure the protection and restoration of Blue Carbon ecosystems.
As our Blue Carbon Technical Officer, you will work on the development of scientific evidence-based projects and research. This will include supporting the coordination of internal and external stakeholders, project management, reporting and ensuring alignment of your work with our overall strategy. We will look to you to provide relevant science support on Blue Carbon, liaise with project and research partners and key stakeholders, and help our devolved offices to deliver Blue Carbon related science in Wales and Scotland. You will also support grant agreements and monitor budgets and spend as well as develop and deliver relevant materials for presentations and briefings. You will get involved in future partnership development too.
A graduate, you must have experience of delivering successful large scale Blue Carbon projects as well as an understanding of marine biodiversity, habitats, climate mitigation and adaptation. You will have good knowledge of the UK’s seascapes, ocean biodiversity, and ocean management issues too. Comfortable engaging with multiple stakeholders, you will be used to coordinating projects and research and managing large and complex budgets. Good at solving problems, you will also possess excellent networking, communication and influencing skills.
