Development Manager

Lancashire Wildlife Trust

£24,548 pa

Paid • Full Time • Fixed Term Contract

Sectors: conservation & wildlife

Closing date: Thursday, 31st January 2019  

We want to build on the success of the HIVE at Moss Bank Park to develop a visitor attraction which becomes a sub-regional family destination – engaging and inspiring people about the outdoors and wildlife. Do you have the drive, ability and confidence to help us deliver this ambition?

You will increase people’s connection with the outdoors, nature and the Trust through the co-ordination and development of a programme of exciting and interactive engagement initiatives throughout the Park. These will be focused particularly within our existing HIVE attraction as well as galvanising activity amongst the public to get actively involved in our work at the Park.

To help us achieve this ambition you will lead a small team to enhance and expand our blend of semi-commercial engagement opportunities. You will be tasked with increasing our visitor numbers at events by over 50%, along with achieving set targets for earned income. You will also act as the lead, supported by senior officers within the Trust and key partners, to implement new strands of delivery and capital development on an underutilised asset within the Park to improve the quality and diversity of attraction at the Park. 

With support from colleagues internally and externally, you will have a unique opportunity to shape the way in which we inspire and engage thousands of people every year with the outdoors at this Park. Your work will also provide a benchmark for how similar parks across the country can implement different models of community engagement to help make them sustainable for the future.
