We are currently seeking to recruit a Marine Planning Officer to help deliver The Wildlife Trusts’ belief that development in the marine environment should be the right technology in the right place and not at the expense of the natural environment.

Full time position fixed term of two years.

The Wildlife Trusts is a grassroots movement of people from a wide range of backgrounds and all walks of life, who believe that we need nature and nature needs us. Each Wildlife Trust is an independent charity formed by people getting together to make a positive difference to wildlife and future generations, starting where they live. We believe that a healthy, wildlife-rich natural environment is not only valuable in its own right; it is fundamentally important for human health, wellbeing, and our prosperity.

By working in partnership, we can have a bigger impact for wildlife and the Wildlife Trusts here in Wales are working together to help ensure that our seas are managed to recover and thrive from past damage, disturbance and neglect. However, with the demands on our seas for resources and energy, the scale of future development is increasing. Achieving ecological sustainability of marine industries – existing and new – at a time when economic growth is considered a priority is a challenge but one that can be met with the right approach.

We are currently seeking to recruit a Marine Planning Officer to help deliver The Wildlife Trusts’ belief that development in the marine environment should be the right technology in the right place and not at the expense of the natural environment by:

  • Leading on responses to marine energy development applications around Wales
  • Building connections with the relevant networks, advisory groups and individuals.
  • Maintaining a flow of information within the Wildlife Trusts in Wales, with other Trusts and with RSWT.
