This new post is an exciting opportunity to shape the Environment Trust’s heritage projects. You will be developing local knowledge and networks, raising awareness of the Trust and identifying and developing projects where the Trust could most make an impact.
The Environment Trust aims to inspire love of local places. We are an established landscape and buildings preservation trust caring for both the natural and built environment and connecting to people of all ages and backgrounds throughout south west London. We aim to enhance people’s lives through inclusion, volunteering and learning.
We are seeking an experienced and inventive conservation specialist with a relevant degree or equivalent to manage projects to address the issues facing designated heritage assets on the Historic England Heritage at Risk register, or those potentially at risk, in south west London. This will involve working closely with Historic England, Local Authorities, site owners and local communities. You will apply the ethos of ‘constructive conservation’ and make effective use of Historic England’s Conservation Principles. IHBC Membership is preferred.
You will need to be able to identify the need for a project, devise and develop the project including conservation plans, considering any potential planning issues. You will need to engage local support, give advice on planning and source funding.
As an effective and creative project manager with an eye for detail, as well as an inspiring advocate for heritage, you will be comfortable operating at a high strategic level. You will deliver our existing commitments in Richmond to develop local participation in understanding and celebrating heritage. You will enable volunteers to develop heritage skills through offering training and advice and seek to develop sustainable funding for ‘Heritage at Risk’ assets. This post is an opportunity to drive forward conservation practice and policy throughout the Environment Trust's area of operation.

Built in 2013-14 the kitchen garden transformed a neglected corner of Marble Hill Park. It is now a showcase for heritage varieties of produce, which visitors can sample in season. People with no allotment or garden have the use of ten community plots, which are currently all allocated. The success of the garden depends upon the dedication of a team of volunteers. You do not need any special knowledge to be a volunteer. We welcome people with all levels of gardening skill. This is a great opportunity to learn about gardening, enjoy exercise and fresh air and meet new people.
