picture-541-1602494722.jpgThank you for your interest in these important roles at the heart of the UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology. Our vital work underpins cutting-edge responses to a very broad spectrum of environmental issues and challenges, and this is an extremely exciting time to join us.

We are a remarkably successful and respected organisation, with a very healthy pipeline and a supportive, engaged group of collaborating partners. Despite the disruption of the last six months, we have continued to work very consistently during the COVID period. We do science for a reason: our work will only become more vital as the decade progresses, and we want to play a decisive role in supporting governments and businesses across the globe to make sustainable, evidence-based decisions.

We believe that people leadership, culture and communication are primary determinants of organisational performance, and ensuring that we sustain world-class people strategies is an absolute priority. We’re looking for applications from highly qualified and experienced professionals who can both consolidate our record of excellent performance in this area, and develop the new approaches that we will need to support our growth in the coming years. It’s a rare opportunity to contribute your professional experience, skills and knowledge to our ambition: doing excellent environmental science so that together, people and nature can prosper.

We’ve engaged Cadence Partners to support us in these appointments, so for a more in-depth conversation about the roles or any issue that isn’t covered on this candidate microsite please contact Shani Newbold (follow this link for contact details).

I look forward to receiving your application.

Yours sincerely,

Professor Mark J Bailey FAAM, FRSB
Executive Director UKCEH
