Building Manager for Courmettes

A Rocha France is a Christian environmental organisation. Created in 2000 in France, it is part of an international network of nature protection associations established in 20 countries on five continents. Convinced that the ecological crisis (climate change, collapse of biodiversity, pollution, etc.) is the major challenge of the 21st century, we are pursuing a dual mission: to preserve living creatures and to mobilise Christians (for a complete presentation of our actions, see our 2020 activity report).

A Rocha manages the Domaine des Courmettes, a 600-hectare private nature reserve on which are located remarkable buildings with a significant capacity for accommodation. These buildings constitute an architectural heritage to be preserved, but they are also a Public Access Facility (PAF) to be upgraded and developed.
