Place of Work: Bridlington
An exciting opportunity has arisen within Culture and Customer Services to work collaboratively with external partners and internal services to develop the offer from Sewerby Hall and Gardens and thereby maximise the potential of the East Riding's coastline north of Bridlington to south of Scarborough. Two key aims are to increase footfall to enhance the visitor experience at Sewerby Hall and Gardens and the wider collaborative offer with Partners within the target area to develop a stronger offer together.
As Destination Partnerships Officer you will be expected to facilitate the development of partnerships, focusing on a collaborative and coordinated approach in order to raise the profile of the region's unique nature offer and heritage. In conjunction with partners, you will strategically manage developments, programmes and initiatives, capitalising for example on the opportunities that Sewerby Hall and Gardens present due to its significant heritage and natural assets.
Nature conservation is a vital element of any sustainable community project as is the relationship with key partners. As a shared resource you will work with key 'partner leads' in order for partners to be empowered and represented in equal measure while delivering environmental, social and economic objectives together, therefore benefitting health and well-being, social, environmental and educational agendas.
You should have the ability to create a shared vision; for example by establishing links with education providers in order to create a series of extracurricular activities and opportunities for academic study. Sewerby Hall and Gardens presents an abundance of opportunity in terms of an enhanced learning experience that re-establishes the historic garden and parkland and promotes its learning opportunities in relation to heritage, culture, science, the environment and natural history of the locality.
You will build on existing local expertise and existing relationships and engage with new partners to provide opportunities for people to reconnect with wildlife and the natural world while supporting and developing the leisure and well-being infrastructure.
You should possess a good understanding of the value of wildlife and nature tourism to the local economy. You should have experience of policy / strategy development in a multi-agency environment.
We are looking for someone who has the ability to work with partners to creatively and effectively link leisure and nature opportunities in this geographic area of national significance.
Based in Bridlington, with the need for some remote working across the North of Bridlington region, this post is a 2-year, fixed-term contract for 37 hours a week.
