**The Role:**

The University of Cambridge is seeking a knowledgeable and committed individual to join the University's Environmental Sustainability Team as their Biodiversity Manager.

The role holder will be responsible for the development and implementation of policies, plans and projects that help to minimise the negative impact of University operations on biodiversity, and which maximise restoration and regeneration of ecosystems across the University's estate and operations.
