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.
