Glastir Project Manager Support Officer


The overriding mission for Natural Resources Wales is to ensure that the environment and natural resources of Wales are sustainably maintained, enhanced, and used by the people, communities and economy of Wales in the present and for the future. 

The organisation, a Welsh Government Sponsored Body, will be expected to deliver for Wales and play its part in delivering against the three pillars of sustainability – people and communities, the environment; and the economy, thereby supporting Ministers to deliver the Welsh Government’s ‘Programme for Government’. 

As a recognition of the establishment of Natural Resources Wales and the organisation’s key role in delivering the Government’s agenda, Welsh Government has committed to developing shared outcomes against which delivery and performance (of both partners) can be aligned.

These shared outcomes recognise the need for close working with stakeholders (including customers, communities, staff and representative groups).  Multi-partner delivery will be central in addressing the key challenges associated with sustainable development and working in partnership with Welsh Government and other delivery partners, Natural Resources Wales Leadership Group will contribute collectively to deliver the shared outcomes[1]:

1.         The people of Wales are safe

2.         Natural resources are healthy and resilient

3.         There are more and better jobs for now and for the future

4.         The people of Wales are healthy

5.         People live in viable and vibrant places

6.         There are increased opportunities for people to achieve a better quality of life, and people are wealthier with greater equality

7.         People have the knowledge and ability to make the best choices for future wellbeing

Delivery against these outcomes will require new ‘ways of working’ and Natural Resources Wales is committed to being a learning organisation adopting an ecosystems approach to deliver the NRW’s overall mission.

As a new organisation, Natural Resources Wales will face challenges in establishing itself as an exemplar in terms of how it delivers these innovative and far reaching concepts in Wales.  There will also be challenges in ensuring that the organisation provides value for money for Wales and maximises the impact of sustainability for our people, communities, environment and economy.
