Overview

This is a fantastic opportunity to play a key role in helping in the delivery of the Tamara Landscape Partnership Scheme.

This inspirational scheme will offer training and volunteering opportunities, events and support designed to enhance landscape and historical heritage, champion health and wellbeing, and boost the local economy – enriching lives and reviving livelihoods. To engender a step change in the number and nature of people engaged in and caring for this distinctive area, the scheme will reach out to and connect communities, individuals and disadvantaged and hard to reach groups.

The Land Management Officer will be responsible for the delivery of the key Tamara Landscape Partnership Scheme project New Approaches under the line management of the Senior Heritage Officer.

The project:

New Approaches –
This project will work with farmers, landowners and community groups to achieve biodiversity gain and climate change mitigation and resilience and increasing income for farmers and landowners through the post-Brexit agri-environmental scheme. This will result in an increase in what many would consider the natural heritage features of the landscape. It will also work with Government Agencies and NGOs to deliver challenging woodland and hedge restoration targets as well as flood management improvements.

You will also be an experienced project manager with a successful track record that can be evidenced from working on previous National Lottery Heritage Fund or similar equivalent land management funded projects. You should also be educated to degree or equivalent level or have equivalent experience and have a background in delivering complex land management outcomes where you have gained the skills to successfully manage, support and deliver the involvement of a broad spectrum of stakeholders and partners in successful land management projects. You will need experience in grant funded project management where you played a demonstrable, pivotal role in delivering highly challenging project outcomes and outputs within a tight timeline.

The Tamara Landscape Partnership team works closely with a wide range of public, private and voluntary organisations and this role requires the people, facilitation and project management skills to bring these diverse groups to work together towards shared goals.

The Land Management Officer role is a fixed term position, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, to support the Tamara Landscape Partnership. The contract will end on 31.12.2025. It is a 0.8 FTE and the salary band is Cornwall Council Band I.
