East Suffolk Council is an exciting place to work and a great place to make a real difference to people’s lives, delivering vital services to a quarter of a million people across East Suffolk.

In this new role, you will act as the lead advisor in the implementation of the Suffolk Coast Recreational Disturbance Avoidance and Mitigation Strategy (Suffolk Coast RAMS), funded by developer contributions from East Suffolk Council, Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Councils, and Ipswich Borough Council.

You will co-ordinate the initial delivery of the RAMS project alongside the partner organisations to enable the longer term planning for the spending of contributions secured and collected by those Local Planning Authorities, which will ensure compliance with the necessary legislative requirements for the protection of Special Protection Areas (SPA), Special Areas of Conservation (SAC) and Ramsar sites along the Suffolk Coast.

You should have excellent project management skills, experience of managing and delivering complex projects in the environmental sector, and knowledge of legislation and law in relation to protected species and habitats.

In return, we can offer great opportunities for training and development and we’ll give you all the support we can to build a great career with our organisation. There’s also a superb benefits package including flexible working options and purpose-built, brand new office accommodation, as well as a generous leave entitlement, discount scheme, pension scheme and free car parking.

Due to the current situation with Covid-19, the majority of our teams are working from home and there are strict social distancing measures in place for the limited number of staff working from our offices.
