As a Future Parks Programme Manager for Cambridgeshire County Council through Opus LGSS, you will lead the Future Parks Accelerator project working with and inspiring all of the project partners and wider stakeholders to deliver the project objectives to time, to budget and to high quality.
The Future Parks Accelerator (FPA) is a new national strategic initiative from the National Trust, the National Lottery Heritage Fund and the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government. It will enable a cohort of nine places across the UK to develop innovative solutions to secure and enhance the future of their public parks and green spaces.
Seven local authorities and the Local Nature Partnership across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough have joined forces and secured FPA support to develop new ways of working in partnership, in order to secure a bright future for the county’s parks in a context of unprecedented growth.
The two-year programme will work to develop a strategic, cross-sector partnership approach between Cambridgeshire and Peterborough’s local authorities, developers, charities, communities and businesses.
This is a temporary position for up to three months, while looking to fill the position on a 2 year contract.
The successful applicant is likely to be educated to Degree level or equivalent, ideally within business management, project management or an environment/science-based subject. The role would suit experienced project managers (ideally Prince 2 or Agile) from a range of sectors including parks and landscapes, programme management, planning and development.
This is a new role with a high level of decision making and accountability and experience of public service transformation would be ideal. In addition, the ability to provide complex technical advice and explain and communicate proposals and experience of managing complex projects including business planning, budget management processes, procurement procedures and contract/commissioning processes and risk management are also required.
