The Norfolk and Suffolk Brecks is a very special part of East Anglia with a unique heritage. Working as part of a small, motivated and dynamic team, we need someone to provide a vital, multi-faceted support role for the delivery of a series of exciting heritage, conservation, and community engagement projects as part of the Heritage Lottery funded Brecks Fen Edge and Rivers Landscape Partnership Scheme (BFER).

In this role you will:

  • provide key administrative and finance support for the project team
  • maintain social media and website content
  • help deliver events
  • help co-ordinate project activities across the partnership.

As the first point of contact for BFER, you will need to be a motivated self-starter, with good communication skills as well as excellent administrative and IT skills.

This organisation positively encourages the use of technology to communicate and engage, but in this role you will need to operate across a wide and rural area, so you must either hold a full and current driving licence and have access to personal transport or meet the mobility requirements of the role through other reasonable and suitable means.

For an informal discussion only, please contact Nick Dickson on (01473) 264628.
