This is a Senior Officer post within the North East People and Places Team that covers Flintshire, Wrexham and Denbighshire. The purpose of the post is to facilitate and further the development of Clwyd Opportunity Catchment that is mostly within North East, but also covers a small part of North West and will require some cross boundary liaison.
Working from the North East People and Places Team, this is very much a doing and making stuff happening role.
Our Opportunity Catchment is varied and interesting including an urban area with bathing waters, rural landscapes that are upland and lowland agricultural areas, a number of places that have experienced significant flooding, a range of key conservation designations and habitats, and challenging WFD waterbodies.
We recognise that promoting integrated catchment management and developing capital improvements within the catchment play a pivotal role in achieving good ecological status whilst delivering a range of other benefits to the community.
As Senior Officer, your role would be to work with the existing Opportunity Catchment Group and Clwyd Forum as well as partners such as Welsh Water and the local River Trust to understand issues and identify/develop potential capital improvements. You would do this by providing technical support and leadership to a range of internal staff and partner organisations, developers and planners. You would also mentor and support NRW colleagues, from leadership team to officer level to increase the understanding of opportunity catchments and integrated catchment planning.
