Ensure that green space is protected within the beautiful city of Nottingham.

This part-time opportunity will involve close working with local partners, community groups, and volunteers as well as on-going communication with internal planning and policy partners. Using your specialist knowledge, you will help guide the management of the city's green space for biodiversity purposes whilst developing and providing strategic policy advice on the role of different green and open spaces within the city.

You'll come to us with specialist knowledge of biodiversity and green space issues together with the ability to think in strategic and policy terms. You'll also have experience of working with external contractors, community groups, and funding organisations, such as the Lottery. Your expertise in providing specialist advice and developing projects will be complemented by a degree or equivalent in ecology, environmental science, or similar.

The Nottingham City Parks & Open Spaces Service is a fast-moving dynamic team that manages and constantly improves green spaces across the city. In the last two years, we have won 15 Green Flag park awards, developed nine outdoor gym areas, two new skate parks, and over 30 playgrounds. We have also adopted a new biodiversity statement, refreshed breathing space strategy, and started the designation of three new local nature reserves.

With over 1500 hectares of green space, including 15 LNRs, four Sites of Special Scientific Interest, and numerous other Sites of Importance for Nature Conservation, this is an exciting place to progress your career.
