Dear Candidate

Thank you for your interest in joining Crystal Palace Park Trust. We are a registered charity working with Crystal Palace Park’s current owner, the London Borough of Bromley, towards a handover of the park to the Trust effective 1 April 2023.

We seek a dynamic Park Manager who shares our commitment to the regeneration of Crystal Palace Park - a Grade II* listed park of significant heritage importance and international significance - and in engaging the local community in its future. The role offers an opportunity to join a small but growing charity at an exciting point in its evolution and to lead on establishing Crystal Palace Park as an exemplar in urban park management.

This position is an opportunity for the right person to join a growing and inspired organisation that is optimistic about the future and eager to effect positive change in Crystal Palace Park. We embrace a work culture that is supportive, celebrates success, and embraces continuing education and training as a critical component of actively supporting staff. Creativity and out of the box thinking are embedded in the Trust’s conception and success to date, and a continued embrace of these attributes by the Park Manager will be central to our ability to thrive. Accordingly, we seek applicants who share our passion, energy and excitement, who identify with the Trust’s mission and embrace the importance of this undertaking, and who believe that they will thrive in such an environment.

If you have the experience, skills, vision and leadership qualities that we are seeking, then we are eager to hear from you. Crystal Palace Park Trust is an equal opportunities employer. We welcome applications from all backgrounds and all sections of the community.

The deadline for applications is 5:00 pm on 20 May 2022. I look forward to hearing from you.
