With support from South West Water and alongside Westcountry Rivers Trust, DWT is driving agricultural change through the Upstream Thinking programme, a national pioneer in natural catchment management, now in its third phase and running to 2025. 

You’ll be leading a complex farm advisory project across 9 Devon water catchments using nature based solutions to deliver improvements in water quality, biodiversity and resource sustainability.  You’ll need budget and people management experience as well as a good working knowledge of agri environment schemes and awareness of relevant agricultural and environmental policies to lead a team of around 15 staff.

This is a full-time, permanent post based at Cookworthy near Halwill Junction. Funding is secured until 2025.  DWT’s offices are currently operating special arrangements as part of the current public health guidance on social distancing, therefore it is likely that you will be required to work from home initially.  We will be moving towards agile working arrangements with a combination of office and home working once the current restrictions ease.

We can offer you good terms and conditions, flexible working arrangements and a great office environment.  The successful candidate will be joining a team of committed, hardworking and friendly colleagues. This is a great opportunity to take the next step in your career within a leading Devon charity.
