Over 75,000 professional staff and almost 40,000 students across the globe have participated in our programmes.
The Projects Director will be responsible for designing and delivering the Nature Recovery Leadership Programmes, leadership development programmes run in-person and online for emerging leaders involved in nature recovery in the UK. They will be an experienced facilitator and someone who can build and maintain strong relationships with new and existing stakeholders.
Self-motivated and resilient.

Confident at building sustainable relationships with mid-level and senior leaders, and persuading people and their organisation of the value of taking part in our leadership development programmes.
A confident presenter and communicator with experience of inspiring confidence in senior and diverse groups.

Experienced in managing and prioritizing a high workload in a fast-paced environment.
