We are an environmental charity based in Scotland. Our vision is of a world where societies are sustainable and ecosystems are healthy. Our mission is to achieve pragmatic and proportionate solutions to discrete environmental issues using best available science working in collaboration with the public, industry and government.
Fidra fulfils its mission through discrete demonstrator projects that seek to address environmental threats from pollution and habitat degradation. We are recruiting a Project Manager to develop and lead new initiatives or take on existing initiatives in the area of pollution and biodiversity.
This is an exciting opportunity to join a highly motivated and effective organisation to scope, design, deliver and monitor effective science driven environmental projects. As a Project Manager you will be keen to deliver results. You will be expected to take forward new ideas, be driven by the science, delve into the detail and context and grasp the complexity of the issues you are working on. You will need to be able to analyse and distil information in a simplified manner appropriate for different audiences. To have an impact you will need to influence a range of stakeholders from government, industry to civil society. This will require polite persistence as well as drive, creativity and resilience to ensure change happens. In this role you will be expected to be flexible and agile and willing to move between different projects as required. You will be joining a small, dynamic and supportive team. You must be eligible to work legally in the UK.

Now ten years old, the charity has an exciting vision for the next ten – to be a recognized and respected leader in Creative Health as it becomes more mainstream.
