Partnership Director

Natural Cambridgeshire is looking for a Partnership Director to take forward Doubling Nature ambitions.

In 2019 Natural Cambridgeshire launched its ambition to Double Nature across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough to deliver a greatly enhanced environment where nature and people thrive and businesses prosper. That ambition has been taken up as a policy objective by the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority and has the support of the local authorities across the area.

The Combined Authority has recently agreed a budget of £70,000 a year for three years to support the work of the partnership. It has also agreed a £1 million investment in a Doubling Nature fund, designed to accelerate the delivery of nature recovery. This investment is conditional on the identification of an additional £2 million in matched funding from public and private sources.

This additional funding allows Natural Cambridgeshire to recruit a Partnership Director (part-time and flexible working options considered) on a three-year contract. This individual will lead our partnership work, recognising that their leadership role is to help create the strategic framework and the relationships within which the partner organisations can deliver the doubling nature agenda, and that Natural Cambridgeshire itself is not a delivery body.

Salary: £42,000 to £50,000 a year pro-rata

Location: Home-based or within the office of one of the Natural Cambridgeshire Partners

Start date: August 2022, or as soon as possible thereafter

Application process: CVs with a covering letter explaining why you feel you are suitable for this role (no more than 2 sides of A4) should be sent to Richard Astle, Chair of Natural Cambridgeshire (, no later than 12 pm on Tuesday, 21 June 2022.
