Could you help another Scottish Landscape Partnership Scheme take shape?

A new HLF-funded Landscape Partnership Scheme for the Garnock Valley, to the south-east of Glasgow, has recently been given the green light to progress to the next phase of planning. The vision of the Garnock Connections partnership is for a landscape with the River Garnock at its heart, forming a connection from the Muirshiel hills to Irvine Bay and around which the natural, cultural and historical wealth of the valley is enhanced, revealed and made accessible for the benefit of communities now and in the future.

The Partnership's lead partner, the RSPB, is offering a fantastic opportunity for an experienced project manager to lead development of the Garnock Connections Landscape Partnership Scheme, including production of a Landscape Conservation Action Plan, finalisation of scheme projects through community engagement and commissioning and management of development studies. The successful candidate will manage budgets, contracts and staff, submit grant claims and report to funders.  

If you have a proven track record in project and budget management, are well organised and methodical, with strong skills in partnership working and communication and have the drive and vision needed to deliver, this could be the perfect position for you.  This is a one year contract that may be extended by up to a further 4.25 years to manage delivery of the programme, subject to performance and securing funding.  The post will report to a partnership Board comprising RSPB Scotland, North Ayrshire Council, HES, SNH, SEPA and SWT.

There is also an exciting opportunity for a talented project officer to help develop the Garnock Connections Landscape Partnership Scheme by assisting the Project Manager with production of a Landscape Conservation Action Plan, leading a programme of engagement to ensure that the scheme reflects the views and priorities of local communities and stakeholders, working with others to develop project ideas for inclusion in the LCAP and managing a contract to develop the website.    

If you are a creative communicator who is well organised, with strong skills in partnership working and you are enthusiastic about working with people and making a difference, this could be the perfect position for you.  This is a one year contract that may be extended by up to a further 4.25 years to manage delivery of the programme, subject to performance and securing funding. The post will report to a partnership Board comprising RSPB Scotland, North Ayrshire Council, HES, SNH, SEPA and SWT.

This is a partnership project, made possible thanks to financial support from the Heritage Lottery Fund, Ayrshire LEADER and project partners. 

Further information and how to apply is available on the RSPB website.
