Queenswood and Bodenham Lake are much-loved community assets for the people of Herefordshire, managed through the Queenswood and Bodenham Lake Partnership, which is a partnership between Herefordshire Wildlife Trust (HWT) and New Leaf Sustainable Development Ltd.

This post will be employed via Herefordshire Wildlife Trust, and report to the Partnership Board. The Partnership’s governance and managerial arrangements are currently under review and may change in the future. The post holder will be expected to play a proactive role in this review and implementing any changes arising from it.

The QWBL Manager will be key to delivering the Partnership Vision (both directly and through co-ordination with the work of the partners) to reinvent the sites as beacons of sustainability and conservation (focusing on heritage visitor experience development and delivery) within a balanced budget. This will involve widening inclusive participation and increasing the resilience of the sites; based on an approach which is co-created with our current and potential stakeholders (individuals, communities and organisations).
