Conservators of the River Cam recruitment

The Conservators of the River Cam are responsible for maintaining the river between the Mill Pond and Bottisham Lock.

The group includes representatives from the county council, the University, and the Environment Agency. We are also represented, by three councillors and four members of the public. Members of the public are appointed for three years at a time.

Following a resignation, we need to appoint one member of the public for a two-year period starting in February 2020.

We’re seeking to recruit to this post by an open recruitment process. The most important thing is to be interested in, or have knowledge of, some aspect of the river and its use. The position is voluntary and is not paid.

Contact us if you’d like to find out more or apply. The closing date for applications is Monday 6 January 2020.
