We are looking for a capable Development Manager to lead and coordinate the development of a Stage 2 National Lottery Heritage Fund (NLHF) bid for 'Chalkscapes', a £2.8m, 5 year partnership project designed to inspire people to appreciate, enjoy and take action for the countryside on their doorstep.

The successful candidate will develop and grow the partnership - currently made up of more than 14 organisations, led by the Chilterns Conservation Board - oversee the work, secure match funding and prepare the documentation for the submission of the delivery bid.

If the bid is successful, there may be an opportunity for a 5 year extension in order for the post holder to manage the delivery phase of the project.

Chalkscapes focuses on the iconic chalk landscape of the North Chilterns. This protected landscape encircles Dunstable and Luton and stretches across three local authority areas: Central Bedfordshire, Luton and Hertfordshire.

We are looking for someone with a strong track record of developing large, complex projects, a good understanding of outreach and engagement and experience of fundraising. You must have strong relationship development and negotiation skills and a proven ability to complete tasks on budget and on time.

If you have a love of landscapes, history and wildlife and are keen to help the public get more involved in championing and caring for special places this is an excellent opportunity.
