Wessex Regional Flood and Coastal Committee (RFCC)
The Regional Flood and Coastal Committee (RFCC) is a committee established by the Environment Agency under the Flood and Water Management Act 2010 that brings together members appointed by Lead Local Flood Authorities (LLFAs) and independent members with relevant experience for 3 purposes:
- to ensure there are coherent plans for identifying, communicating and managing flood and coastal erosion risks across catchments and shorelines
- to encourage efficient, targeted and risk-based investment in flood and coastal erosion risk management that represents value for money and benefits local communities
- to provide a link between the Environment Agency, LLFAs, other risk management authorities, and other relevant bodies to build understanding of flood and coastal erosion risks in its area

The Environment Agency is looking for an enthusiastic person to get involved in managing flood risk in Wessex.
The Wessex Regional Flood and Coastal Committee is one of 12 Committees across the country that make key decisions on local priorities for flood and coastal risk management.
A vacancy has arisen for a talented and enthusiastic individual to join this important committee to represent coastal process or general interests. Applicants do not need to be experts in flood and coastal risk management, but some technical understanding would be beneficial.
The committee meets four times a year at locations within the Wessex Area although the successful candidate may also be asked to attend additional meetings. The role is unpaid, but reasonable expenses, including travel, can be claimed.
