Do you have a passion for Dartmoor, the working landscape, biodiversity and rural traditions that help shape it? Do you want to be part of a team that helps influence this National Park for future generations?

The Dartmoor Hill Farm Project was set up to support a viable future for Dartmoor farmers by providing advice and information, promoting skills development, and offering a single point of contact to rural communities and partners regarding key issues.

Dartmoor’s Hill Farm Project and the Moor than meets the eye Landscape Partnership Scheme have come together to provide training opportunities in local heritage skills to a wider audience. The Training Co-ordinator will be central to this offer.

Based in the Dartmoor Hill Farm Project team in Princetown, you will build on their established links with the farming community to develop, promote, administer and evaluate an inclusive programme of training events to help conserve our landscape and help build more sustainable rural communities. This will help ensure that Dartmoor’s heritage is better understood, valued and shared for future generations.

The successful applicant will be extremely organised, have proven project management experience and excellent administration and communications skills. You will have an understanding of rural issues, demonstrable knowledge of working with communities and training providers plus a track-record of delivering successful events.
