Flood and Coast Resilience Innovation Program Funds 2 New Vacancies with West Northants Council

13 Oct 2021

West Northants Council advertises two new project management vacancies, made possible by the Flood and Coast Resilience Innovation Funding Program.

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a Project Manager and Project Officer to support West Northants Council's exciting Defra-funded Innovative Flood Resilience project, seeking to combine flood resilience measures at three scales: catchment, community and property, to increase the resilience to flood risk in the affected communities. 

The Northamptonshire Innovative Flood Resilience project is one of 25 national Environment Agency funded projects. The aspiration of the Northamptonshire project is to trial new ways to improve flood resilience in two discrete catchments, at three levels: catchment, community and property level. 

This is a 6-year project, led by West Northamptonshire Council, in partnership with North Northamptonshire Council, and in collaboration with a number of project partners that will deliver nature-based solutions / natural flood management, community resilience measures and property flood resilience, across the two catchments.
