A new opportunity appears for somebody to take a leading role as Project Manager for the Capability Brown Birthday and Festival. How about that – the task of arranging a Nation-wide Birthday Party!
Naturally, a host of specialist skills are required, for this isn’t your average festival. Highlights include: experience of writing Heritage Lottery Fund applications; volunteer engagement; audience outreach and communications strategies; management of the overall project and more.
As the job description states: ‘The Festival will inspire new generations of visitors, participants and experts to leave a legacy of new information, skills and enthusiasm for designed landscape.’
Whilst I’m not involved in this recruitment process at all, I’m sure I speak for many in wishing for a lively, energetic person who can lead from the front; engaging with all manner of folk in the same way that our Mr. Brown once did. Not an easy role to take on, but an exciting one for sure with a chance to make a real difference to countless numbers of people.
Don’t hang around – applications are due in by April Fools Day!
Good Luck to those who are planning to apply, and for all others – please share this as widely as possible in order to attract the best possible candidates!
