Organisation: Historic Coventry Trust
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.
Our National Lottery Heritage Funded repair and landscaping works soon draw to a close at Charterhouse and we plan to open to the public in late 2022. 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.
