The Ryevitalise Landscape Partnership has been successful in securing a grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund for a four year program on the River Rye with a total project spend of over £3million.
The vision of the scheme is to work with partners and the community to conserve, enhance and restore the natural and cultural heritage of the area, enabling people to reconnect with the history, wildlife and landscapes of the River Rye and its tributaries.
The Partnership will be led by the North York Moors National Park Authority, and together with partners and a team of staff the Program Manager will deliver 19 projects on the following three broad themes:
- Water Quality and Environment – working with land managers to improve the aquatic habitats of the Rye, and the rare and threatened species that the river and wider landscape supports;
- Water Level Management – harnessing natural flood processes to create a more naturally functioning river; and
- Reconnecting People – improving understanding of the river landscape by telling the story of its evolution and encouraging people to protect their heritage.
The Manager will report to the National Park Authority and the Partnership Group on progress against the LCAP, and will also be responsible for securing additional external funding to support delivery of the scheme. They will have overall responsibility for the monitoring the programme outputs, budget, meetings and documentation in accordance with National Park Authority and NLHF standards
We are looking for a strong and positive leader, who is dynamic and enthusiastic, with excellent budget and project management skills and a can do attitude.
The National Park and surrounding area is a superb place to live and work with excellent schools and good access to main transportation links. The post is based at the Authority’s Headquarters in the attractive town of Helmsley (market town of the year 2016).
