Employment Location: North Pennines AONB Office, Stanhope
The North Pennines AONB Partnership is looking for a manager for the ground-breaking nature recovery and engagement programme, Tees-Swale – naturally connected. After three years in development, this National Lottery Heritage Fund supported programme is now ready to start making things happen on the ground.
Tees-Swale is led by the North Pennines AONB Partnership, with the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority, and covers nearly 850km2 of outstanding Protected Landscape. The team is supported by a programme Board, chaired by Sir John Lawton. We aim to demonstrate how — by working in tandem with our High Nature Value farmers in particular — we can conserve, restore, expand and connect priority habitats on an unprecedented scale; at the same time, this work will deliver multiple other public benefits including climate change mitigation, flood-risk management and increasing people’s well-being.
If you want to make a real difference for nature recovery and engaging people with nature, have an in-depth knowledge of conservation and a strong understanding of farmers and farming, can build and sustain relationships with people and organisations, and can manage a major programme, professional staff and complex budgets, then we’d like to hear from you.
Applicants should hold a degree or equivalent in a conservation, environmental or heritage management related subject and have substantial experience of successfully managing complex multi-partner projects relating to the conservation of natural beauty or land management.
The post will be based in Stanhope, in County Durham (with flexibility for a degree of remote working), with the need for travel throughout the programme area. The postholder will be employed by Durham County Council on behalf of the AONB Partnership.
