Would you love to lead our Land, Outdoors and Nature work in the North Shropshire landscape, helping us offer even greater access to nature to our local visitors as well as to those from further afield?
Attingham is a 4,000-acre estate set between the growing urban conurbations of Telford and Shrewsbury. We welcome over 540,000 visitors per year - many of these are local regulars and with population growth we expect visitor numbers to reach a million per year by 2032.
Our ambition is to extend public access by opening an Active Outdoor Hub on the wider estate, offering our neighbours in Telford and Shrewsbury - and our less local visitors alike - access to our green space.
If you’re a committed and enthusiastic leader with a proven track-record in countryside or garden management who is passionate about access to nature and making our places welcoming for everyone, this could be the role for you!
Reporting to the General Manager, and as part of the Portfolio’s Leadership team, you’ll play a strategic role in the future of the portfolio.
Our reputation and relationships locally are essential to our success and this role is key in maintaining positive engagement with our visitors, volunteers, partners and stakeholders.
Leading your countryside and gardens team you’ll set and deliver plans to protect and enhance the conservation of our properties. You’ll be responsible for strategic planning and the operational day-to-day delivery for land, outdoors and nature on our properties.
You’ll be part of the Shropshire Vision workstream and the Estate and Active Outdoor Hub workstreams with our Estate Manager and Project Managers.
You’ll work with a wide variety of external stakeholders - including the Severn River Partnership - in delivering your work and you’ll enable a broad range of visitors to have outstanding and inspirational experiences through the quality of our welcome and the effectiveness of our conservation work.
