Public Rights of Way provide great opportunities for the enjoyment of our wonderful Derbyshire countryside. We manage about 5,220km (3614 miles) of paths throughout the whole of Derbyshire, including the Peak District National Park.


Our work is varied however, we need experienced and enthusiastic people to join our team who can offer the following expertise for one of these roles:


  • The promotion of public path orders and the interpretation of the Definitive Map and Statement.
  • Experience in the investigation and removal of obstructions and arranging maintenance works.


In either role you will be able to demonstrate a thorough understanding of the processes involved and be able to draw together comprehensive reports. It would also be advantageous to have a good knowledge of the legislation relating to Public Path Orders, removing obstructions and skills and knowledge related to the maintenance of paths.


There will be opportunities to travel throughout Derbyshire in either role to liaise with applicants to ensure that their application to divert a path for example meets with the legislative requirements or with landowners where paths are obstructed or require maintenance.


Ideally you will have a background in rights of way and be able to demonstrate an understanding of public rights of way and the scope of the underlying legislation. 


Successful candidates will be required to walk long distances and negotiate rough terrain and also possess good communication and IT skills.
