This role is based at Crom Estate, a breath-taking 2000 acre demesne set amidst the tranquil landscape of Upper Lough Erne.

We are undertaking a Landscape project at Crom as part of the HLF- funded Lough Erne Landscape Project. This role will be responsible for delivering the volunteering and community involvement aims of the project.

The successful applicant will join a small team of property staff at Crom and will be managed by the Visitor Experience Manager in the National Trust Fermanagh portfolio. There will also be dotted line reporting to the Project Manager of the Landscape Project.

What you’ll be doing

 

This exciting new role will be crucial in helping us to increase the relevance and accessibility of Crom to all. Inclusivity and participation will be at the heart of this work, whether that’s coordinating volunteering activities, planning future events or through partnerships helping people and communities to deepen their relationship with Crom.

You will lead on the delivery of volunteering and community involvement at Crom, identifying opportunities and deepening relationships with interested interested individuals and groups, including schools. You will develop and deliver on-site and off-site engagement and you will also inspire, support and empower colleagues as we develop participative ways of working. Further, you will work closely with colleagues across the Trust to identify and enhance community engagement opportunities which are relevant, meaningful and mutually beneficial.

Who we’re looking for

 

We are seeking a skilled individual who is genuinely excited by this fantastic opportunity to lead on the delivery of community engagement at Crom.

With a real interest in and understanding of our core purpose, you’ll bring demonstrable community engagement and volunteering experience, alongside an imaginative and collaborative approach to developing participatory projects with a range of community partners (e.g. with local councils, community organisations, schools and volunteer groups). Passionate and enthusiastic, yet empathetic and sensitive to the diverse needs and motivations of different audiences, you will inspire and bring a range of stakeholders with you.

You will be very ‘hands on’ and enjoy getting out and making new contacts, speaking to stakeholders and organising events and activities.

We do not accept CVs or covering letters for Northern Ireland vacancies. Please fill out the online application form on the National Trust Jobs website.
