1. Landscape Partnership Scheme trainee                                            HLF-logo-colour-smaller

A rare opportunity to get experience of a Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) Landscape Partnership Scheme at the Development Stage. 

The Chilterns Conservation Board was awarded a development grant of £185,600 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) Landscape Partnership Scheme in November 2016. In early 2017, the Board appointed a project team to work with the partnership on the plans for Chalk, Cherries and Chairs.  For more information on the Landscape Partnership Scheme please click here.

The trainee post is to support the development of the HLF Stage 2 application. The primary duty is to assist with the development of a range of projects under the main themes of the scheme: Natural, Historical and Cultural Heritage. There will be some flexibility for the trainee to choose to either get a broad experience or focus on a particular area of interest.

The trainee will be based primarily at the Chilterns Conservation Board and will be expected to work closely with the development team. The trainee will also spend time working in partner organisations, to get experience of different types of organisations.

The deadline for applications for this role is 5pm on Monday 21st August
