Description  

We are seeking a Programme and Projects Manager to join our fantastic team. At the Aire Rivers Trust, we’re the only environmental charity dedicated to looking after the Aire and its tributaries. We work to improve our rivers through habitat enhancement, reducing pollution, and improving access and education. We aim to punch above our weight with exciting new projects across the catchment, from the stunning Malham Cove to the hidden Bradford Beck.

  • Demonstrable track record of managing a concurrent mix of projects to achieve overlapping and discrete aims.
  • Strong financial management skills and the ability to manage multiple budgets to achieve maximum value.
  • Ability to communicate effectively with integrity, tact and diplomacy.
  • Experience with a collaborative approach to working and leading colleagues.
  • Strong track record of problem-solving between conflicting priorities.
