Overseeing capital and revenue projects, you’ll work with internal teams to ensure that projects are delivered and funding is maintained. Providing local advice to ensure projects are delivered correctly, you will also review project performance in view of financial, efficiency and outcome measure targets. The role will also work closely with the Regional Flood & Coastal Committee, local partners and internal teams on project/programme development and approaches to local funding.

Additionally you’ll be:

  • Skilled at managing multiple priorities and competing demands
  • Able to show where you’ve worked with others to deliver outcomes
  • An intelligent problem solver with a methodical work approach
  • Able to analyse and interpret complex data

There are opportunities to get involved with incident management when flooding occurs. We have a flexible range of roles you can volunteer for and you’ll get all the training and support you need.
