Castle Bromwich Hall and Gardens Trust is a partner to the Love Your River Cole (LYRiC) project; a partnership project to help transform the Cole Valley, enhancing natural spaces and training local people to look after this important natural river corridor.
With funding from the Green Recovery Challenge Fund, the project is led by Tame Valley Wetlands, and includes a range of partners including ourselves. The project overall will involve tree planting, wildflower meadow creation and wetland habitat enhancements, as well as access improvements to paths and trails through several key sites.
Castle Bromwich Hall and Gardens Trust is now looking for an experienced and flexible Project Manager to oversee, plan and manage our part of the partnership.
We are a small charitable Trust which owns and manages the 400 year old formal Castle Bromwich Gardens (B36 9BT) adjacent to the Parkland.
The Parkland is part of the old Bradford Estate (appx 50 hectares); a highly protected and significant range of buildings and landscapes on the edge of Birmingham. The overall estate is in a Conservation area which includes a range of Grade I,II and II* buildings, the Parkland is a local nature reserve as well as a Grade II* listed Park and Garden.
This project is the first time for over a decade that the owners and managers of the Parkland site have been able to work together to support the important natural and historic aspects of the 12 hectare Parkland.
The Lyric project runs for 12-14 months and involves surveys, planning with a variety of agencies and direct restitution and management work on the Parkland.
The varied works on site will be carried out by involving professional contractors, people from the local community, volunteers from the Trust and the project's Trainees.
This is an exciting and innovative project which will suit an ambitious, skilled and flexible manager looking for a challenge. Although the post is time limited there may be opportunities to grow within the local and wider partnership.
