We are looking for a dynamic project manager skilled in partnership working, keen to make a real difference and leave a positive legacy with our coastal communities and for our natural environment.

This is a rare opportunity to work for the Slapton Line Partnership, at a pivotal time when coastal management is firmly in the spotlight and real solutions are needed to adapt to the effects of climate change. Are you enthusiastic about the coast, able to investigate, plan and develop new ideas, inspire and meaningfully engage with communities and businesses, have vision and drive to respond positively to change and shape a brighter future?

This unique role will build upon 20 years of Slapton Line Partnership coastal management evidence and action to develop, communicate, and implement a pioneering Adaptation Plan. You will help our communities, economy and environment respond to accelerating and substantive coastal change. The project is focused upon the area of and around the famous Slapton Sands shingle barrier, Torcross, A379 coastal road, Slapton Ley and Start Bay within South Hams, Devon. This project area is highly designated, including a National Nature Reserve, Site of Special Scientific Interest and forms an important part of the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
