Shropshire Council is a unitary authority which serves the rural county of Shropshire. One of the most important things about working here is the knowledge that you’re working to help others and the real sense of achievement and purpose that brings. The people of Shropshire are rightly proud of their county’s assets, its natural beauty, its history, its diverse economy, its vibrant culture.
The Farming in Protected Landscapes Adviser will be one of two Advisers providing the main contact and support to applicants for the Farming in Protected Landscapes (FiPL) programme for the Shropshire Hills AONB Partnership team. Between July 2021 and March 2025 the AONB Partnership is offering grants through this programme to farmers and landowners for projects which deliver benefits to nature, climate, people and place. Farming in Protected Landscapes is funded by Defra and is running in all of the English National Parks and AONBs.
In collaboration with the existing Adviser and other team members, the postholder will lead on day to day support to applicants within Defra’s programme framework and guidance. They will also help with maintaining records and monitoring.
