Charterhouse Head Gardener/Park Ranger

Location: Coventry
Organisation: Historic Coventry Trust
Reference: HCOVT011

We need an experienced, certified and confident Head Gardener to plan, manage and lead a diverse team of volunteers in delivering a fantastic outdoor experience for the public at a key Grade 1 heritage site in Coventry. 

Historic Coventry Trust is an ambitious and entrepreneurial charity with a mission to act as the champion of all heritage at risk in Coventry and to become its permanent guardian.  We are a pioneering ‘heritage development trust’ on a journey to create a self-sufficient charity using revenue generated from property income to sustain a portfolio of 22 heritage assets which are being transferred to our care from Coventry City Council.  You have the opportunity to join us at a formative stage – helping to create the projects, activities, teams and culture that will ensure we succeed in restoring and reusing Coventry’s heritage for the future. 

As our National Lottery Heritage Funded repair and landscaping works draw to a close at Charterhouse we have support from the Cultural Recovery Fund to establish the role of Head Gardener/Park Ranger.  We plan to open to the public in June 2021 and this part-time annualised hours role will be central to maintaining and developing the gardens, training and supporting a dedicated group of volunteers and ensuring people have a great visit to Charterhouse and the wider Heritage Park. 

If you have experience in implementing and managing new garden schemes, maintaining wildlife-rich landscapes, working with volunteers and ensuring a fantastic visitor experience we’d love to hear from you.  For more information, please go to https://ww2.rockpools.co.uk/Webport/Jobs

Part-time 0.5 FTE (annualised hours - full time until end March 2021) 

The post will be based at Charterhouse, Coventry.
