One year fixed-term contract

The Yorkshire Arboretum has been awarded a development phase grant by the Heritage Lottery Fund to enable the preparation of a second round bid for a grant to fund our development on accessibility and interpretation. The project, entitled ’If Trees Could Talk’ is aimed at making the arboretum more accessible to the public, providing high quality interpretation and enhancing our ability to engage with, educate and provide interesting and exciting activities to a wider range of visitors. Our objective is to share more widely the diverse heritage of our collection, the historical landscape and its natural biodiversity, and the work we do to develop it with a growing audience of all ages.

The role of Project Officer has become available as a key member of the team which will develop and implement the elements of the project funded by HLF. The role is available in the first instance for a fixed period of one year during which development of the detailed planning and specifications for the project will be carried out. If successful at the second round it may then be extended for a further two years to cover the delivery phase of the project.
