Assistant Project Officer, Local Nature Recovery Strategy, Norfolk County Council

About Maggie Swinfen

I am currently Assistant Project Officer in the Stakeholder Engagement Team, in Community and Environmental Services at Norfolk County Council, where I am working on the Local Nature Recovery Strategy for Norfolk, in England,  I am also supporting a WWF funded Creative Engagement Community Nature Project. For the past fourteen years I have worked in my spare time, with my partner, creating a five acre wildlife habitat at our home in Norfolk, in the midst of intensively farmed land. We now have barn owls, little owls, badgers, hare, water vole, cuckoos, weasels, yellow hammer and so much more regularly on our land, and some have made permanent homes here. I am a career switcher, having worked in television production for most of my life, for many years at a charity which engaged with the Deaf community, commissioning programmes in British Sign Language. Two years ago I completed the Wild Team course on project management which helped me to start on my new career path, along with volunteering for the RSPB and a local nature reserve.
