South Derbyshire is a thriving and successful place at the heart of the National Forest, with a healthy visitor economy alongside an expanding business sector. With high-value jobs and outstanding transport links, you can understand why we’re one of the fastest growing Districts in the country and this is reflected in our vision to be ‘a great place to live, visit and invest’.

An opportunity has arisen within the Parks and Green Space section for a Biodiversity and Green Space Officer to support the Council’s commitment to the Climate Emergency and the importance of the environment within the Council’s Corporate Plan.

 

The role will see you make a direct impact on quality of life in South Derbyshire and requires you to provide expertise in biodiversity, ecology, green spaces, habitat and species surveys and develop site management plans for sites across the district. A key part of your role will be to work closely with the Planning Service and other services across the Council and provide advice, recommendations and approvals for development schemes, landscape plans, SuDS, nature sites and green spaces. 

We are looking for someone who is determined to achieve the very best for the communities in which they work and who will step up to take the initiative and the accountability for making things happen.

It is a role that requires great technical knowledge, attention to detail, partnership working skills, good communication, an ability to think strategically, manage a demanding workload and display a commitment to high standards, engendering change and meeting deadlines.   

The job is a full time fixed-term appointment for two years.
