Salary: £22,991 per annum
Location: Clumber Park Consultancy Office, Worksop, Nottinghamshire
Contract: Full time, permanent
About the role
Here at the National Trust, we care for and provide access to more land in England, Wales and Northern Ireland than any other private landowner. For that reason effective sustainable land management is at the heart of everything we do. This role encompasses balancing conservation with access to show practical leadership in the field of let estate management. You’ll help property colleagues to achieve their conservation, access and presentation aims as well as their business objectives.
From working with our tenant farmers to managing lettings to licensing activities, you’ll help colleagues to provide in-depth, up-to-the-minute advice and guidance. You’ll also draw upon internal and external data trends to ensure that we’re providing the best service in the most effective way. Like everyone here, you’ll be excited by the challenge of helping more and more people to enjoy our magical places and spaces.
Please note that whilst initially based at Clumber Park, our office will be relocating to Hardwick Hall, near Chesterfield, Derbyshire in 2013.
With a degree in a relevant subject, you’ll be working towards becoming a member of the RICS. You’ll have practical knowledge of land use management, environmental issues, conservation and sustainable development. With experience of rural work, you know the issues communities are facing and what it’s like to live and work in the countryside. You’ll also have an up-to-date understanding of what’s happening in the wider world of rural surveying (including relevant legislation). With strong negotiation skills you will be able to work alongside our tenants and build good trusted relationships, whilst also working with the property teams to help guide and support them in the decision making process.
Do great things for us and we’ll do great things for you and your career. We’ll give you all the training, support and continued professional development you need to achieve professional qualification, and we appreciate that work/life balance is important. You can also look forward to free admission to all our incredible places, and a helpful 20% off at our shops, cafes and restaurants. But they’re just the benefits we can tell you about here.

Here at the National Trust, we want even more people to enjoy our extraordinary places and spaces. We want people of all ages and backgrounds to get involved with them, be inspired by them, and love them as much as we do. That’s why we’ve put some bold ambitions in place. We want everyone in England, Wales and Northern Ireland to feel like a member of the National Trust and, by 2020, we want to have grown our membership to more than five million.
