LPS Development Manager & Officer vacancies - Chilterns

Chalk, Cherries and Chairs  - Central Chilterns Landscape Partnership

The Chilterns Conservation Board is delighted to be recruiting a development team to work up our Stage 2 Landscape Partnership Scheme bid

Chalk, Cherries and Chairs Landscape Partnership focuses on the chalk landscape of the Buckinghamshire Chilterns. The Chilterns is one of the most visited landscapes in Europe, nationally and internationally significant for its geology and ecology, rich in cultural heritage.   But this is also a landscape under pressure.  Housing and infrastructure growth is unprecedented; ancient woodlands are being divided up and sold off; wildlife habitats are severed and fragmented.

The issues are many but the Partnership (30+ organisations), led by the Chilterns Conservation Board, is committed and full of ideas

We are looking for:

Landscape Partnership Development Manager

Salary: £32,000 - £35,000 per annum

Fixed term -  18 months, full time  (part time options considered)


The Development Manager will co-ordinate and lead the development of project plans, secure match funding and prepare the documentation for the submission of the Stage 2 bid. We are looking for an experienced Development Manager, with a strong track record of developing large, complex projects, good understanding of landscape issues and experience of fundraising

Fixed term: 15 months, full time (part time options considered)
