Policy Officer vacancy

Based in Horncastle, Lincolnshire


12 month contract full time (part time & secondment opportunities available)

Do you have an understanding of conservation or health and/or tourism and want to find a way for these sectors to work better together? Can you get to grips with policy documents and understand what these mean for individuals and wildlife?

We have an opportunity for a proactive Policy Officer to work across sectors evidencing the value of nature to health and tourism – a natural capital approach. The role will need to focus on ensuring that the outcomes of this work deliver on the combined objectives of all the organisations involved and can make a real difference to both wildlife and people. Problem solving and an ability to get on with others will be a clear advantage.

Knowledge of nature conservation policy, tourism policy and/or health policy will be an advantage as the role primarily covers these areas. Training will be given but as a time limited post a candidate with these skills will stand out. This is an ideal opportunity to deliver a number of discrete projects and well as building skills and contacts with other organisations in the sector. The GLNP is a partnership working with a large number of organisations and people.

A full current UK driving licence is also required.

The GLNP is a government accredited Local Nature Partnership and the Policy Officer is a new temporary role.
