£45k - £50k Annual

Do you want to lead the growth of a rapidly evolving business area that has a specific focus on UK projects around woodland creation and peatland restoration that will avoid and remove carbon dioxide? Acre is working in partnership with ClimateCare to build on existing capability in their Nature Based Solutions service offering, with the hiring of three exciting new roles.

This role as the UK Nature Based Solutions (NBS) Manager, is focused on ClimateCare's UK clients who want UK projects as part of a portfolio to meet their climate and wider corporate objectives. UK NBS projects have the potential to contribute to UK carbon emission reductions alongside significant environmental and social co-benefits.

* Helping to shape ClimateCare's NBS growth strategy
* Originating, negotiating and managing agreements with credible partners (such as landowners, NGOs, commercial developers and agents across the UK)
* Carrying out due diligence on opportunities, working with technical specialists as needed, to assess project/partnership viability and integrity
* Keeping abreast of changes in the funding, regulatory and Code landscapes in order to identify new commercial opportunities

Reporting into the Director of Nature Based Solutions, we are looking for a dynamic, commercially-minded individual to seek out and secure project and partnership opportunities. You will be at the centre of the propositions driving growth in this highly innovative and rapidly evolving market.

You will have:

* Significant experience in a relevant role, with a strong commercial acumen
* Track record in managing commercial agreements with experience risk evaluation and financial analysis
* Understanding of the voluntary carbon market and the key principles of Nature Based Solutions
* Experience working with local implementation partners such as NGOs and private companies
* Strong track record of managing a pipeline of opportunities through to delivery

If you are a creative professional with the ability to find pragmatic solutions, challenge partners constructively, drive action and have a passion for accelerating Natural Climate Solutions, please apply for more details.
