To ensure this pioneering initiative achieves its objectives we need to find the people that share the vision and passion, but most importantly, have the appropriate skills and experience to support local authorities and their partners deliver transformational change across their parks and greenspace estate.

We’re working with eight places: Birmingham City Council, Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole unitary authority, Bristol City Council, Cambridgeshire County Council (and the six other associated local authorities), London Boroughs of Camden and Islington, City of Edinburgh Council, Nottingham City Council and Plymouth City Council. In addition we continue to work in Newcastle with the newly established Newcastle Parks and Allotments Trust.

We have a core team in place, the Delivery Director, Senior Investment Manager, Advisory Services Manager, Account Managers, a Fundraiser and Volunteering and Participation specialist.

We are looking for a new Account Manager to work primarily with our Bristol and Plymouth projects. The closing date for applications is 23 January 2020, and the vacancy is open to internal (NT and National Lottery Heritage Fund candidates only).

As Account Manager you will work with up to three of the nine places that make up the FPA cohort to help support innovation and deliver transformation. You will act as a critical friend, coach, mentor, problem solver and creative thinker. You are at the heart of everything the FPA does to support the places in the cohort. You will help co-design, plan and implement the transformational change across each place’s parks portfolio. You will work with the FPA Senior Investment Manager and FPA Advisory Services Manager to ensure all resources are deployed as effectively and efficiently as possible across the cohort.

Applications for this role are now closed.
