The Midlands Parks Forum is a young and vibrant organisation which is evolving from the West Midlands Parks Forum, which has been established for 33 years, and the East Midlands Parks Forum, which is re-establishing after a period of decline. The new combined organisation will become the voice for parks and green spaces in the Midlands.

The Forum has recently been successful in gaining Resilient Heritage Fund money from the National Lottery Heritage Fund which includes funding for this post.

We now need a Partnership Manager who will develop the organisation and oversee the delivery of workshops, research, case studies as well as securing additional funding. You will also be responsible for engaging new forum members and reporting to NLHF. This will be a challenging role and we are looking for someone who has got the commitment to the green space sector and drive to help us make this work.

Office space and support can be provided by CFP who are developing our feasibility study and business plan, but home working and working away from home are expected. You will be required to travel extensively throughout the region.

The role is envisaged as being self-employed but we are willing to consider applications to be employed via CFP.
