‘This Exploited Land: The trailblazing story of ironstone and railways in the North York Moors’ (TEL) is an exciting new Landscape Partnership Scheme funded through the Heritage Lottery Fund and a range of other partners. The 5-year project will conserve some of the iconic built heritage features across Rosedale and the Esk Valley, work with land managers to nurture the natural environment that has reclaimed these spaces and tell the fascinating stories of this transition in both landscape and communities.

• Ability to work as part of a dynamic team;

• Enthusiasm for working with communities and land managers; and

• Skill for communicating with partners, volunteers and contractors.
