‘Finding Lost Norton Park: Digging Deeper for All’ Community Engagement Worker 

Interviews: Tuesday 21st February 2023

Location: Sheffield / Graves Park

Hours: 18hrs per week (50% fte) (flexible - some weekend & evening work necessary) starting March 2023 to end July 2024

Salary: around £25K pa pro rata plus agreed work-related expenses

The Friends of Graves Park’s “Finding Lost Norton Park: Digging Deeper for All” project, supported thanks to money raised by National Lottery players, awarded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, has just started and is set to run until July 2024. Our project will investigate the landscape, archaeology and importance of Graves Park, once ancient Norton Park, in more detail, to answer questions arising from a previous project, such as the confirmation of heritage features like a potential prehistoric barrow, the linear banks and ‘lost’ buildings. Our ambition for the project is to actively engage diverse communities with the Park’s less well known areas, giving people an opportunity to join with others in the Park, taking part in the archaeological, historical and ecological activities, thereby creating a social outlet in a safe environment.

We seek an individual to support and develop the project going forwards. The part-time post for approximately 17 months will work with Friends of Graves Park volunteers, community groups, schools, and specialist advisors to carry out the project. The community engagement worker will be supported by a steering group with day-to-day management from the project manager.

The post will be based in Sheffield hosted by South Yorkshire Biodiversity Research Group although much of the work will be operating in and around Graves Park and the local area.
