The Future Parks Accelerator (FPA) is a unique and exciting collaboration between the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and the National Trust (NT). Our partnership will generate new ways to protect and enhance access to parks and urban green spaces. It is the first truly joint initiative between our organisations and it will combine the best of our skills, resources and leadership to deliver our shared cause.
To ensure this pioneering initiative gets underway we need to find the people that share the vision and passion, but most importantly, have the appropriate skills and experience to lead it.
In the first recruitment phase, we need to fill two integral roles - FPA Delivery Director and FPA Investment Manager - as without them we would not be able to begin the journey.
This is a leading position with responsibility for the strategic direction and the overall management of the joint initiative. We need a strong leader that possesses an eclectic mix of resilience and creativity; an instinctive collaborator and culture creator that will lead by example. An enabler to ensure that this mission not only succeeds, but inspires others and organically grows this ambitious partnership between HLF and NT.
This role is responsible for driving sustained impact from the £5m grant investment, creative in gaining efficiencies and value for money across the initiative and integrating finance with expert advice to ensure a coherent package of support for Places. You will manage two Account Managers and Team Support and report to the Delivery Director.
If you are interested in being part of this exciting venture, there will be further opportunities to be involved with more roles being advertised in November and December 2018. These will include: an Advisory Services Manager responsible for the overall management of advice and expertise to the Places and two Account Managers acting as critical friend and enabler to up three Places each.
A message from the HLF Chief Executive and NT Director General with a supporting Q&A is available on both the HLF and NT intranet sites.
