Full Time, Fixed Term (21 months)

Ref: 3571


Do you want to be at the cutting edge of innovation in parks? If the answer is yes, then you may be just the person we are looking for, as we embark on an exciting journey alongside seven other ambitious projects across the UK funded by the Future Parks Accelerator programme (FPA).


FPA is a new national strategic initiative from the National Trust, the National Lottery Heritage Fund and the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government.  Together we will explore new ways to invest in our parks as we seek to unlock a spectrum of benefits for people today and generations to come.


You will be part of fast paced two year programme working with a broad range of partners and stakeholders to produce a ‘Bristol Parks Prospectus’, designed to attract investment  in parks from social enterprise and commercial partners and increase opportunities for community engagement and action.


We anticipate stimulating innovative health partnerships, joint ventures with environmental organisation and increased business interests as we progress revenue generating activities where compatible with the character, role and use of a particular park or green space.


You will be responsible for the delivery of key elements of the Bristol Parks Prospectus, including bringing partners, stakeholders and park users into the project and overseeing commissioned work.


This is a role with key project delivery accountability, and could suit experienced project managers from a range of sectors including parks and landscapes, programme management, planning and development, or public service transformation.


If you are enthusiastic about working collaboratively and expanding your horizons this could be a role for you.  Your skills in stakeholder engagement alongside project management will be essential in taking on this challenge.  You will be working within a multi-disciplinary team with significant input and support from a variety of sectors.


Join us and you’ll receive a generous rewards package including flexible working and flexi-time, membership of the Local Government Pension scheme, and generous annual leave allowance. In addition you’ll be working in a supportive environment where you’ll have the chance to make Bristol a better place and contribute to its future.


In addition, we are also recruiting to a Programme Manager role which is currently live, as well as a Project Support Officer which will be advertised shortly via the Bristol City Council jobs page.
