Rural Surveyor
Salary:  £27,872 per annum, pro rata
Location: Based at Clumber Park, Worksop, Nottinghamshire
Contract: Permanent, part time (18.5 hours per week over three days)

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. Small wonder, then, that effective, sustainable land management is at the heart of everything we do. But what’s the best way to balance conservation with access? How can we show practical leadership in the field of sustainable land management? Big questions demand some big thinking, and that’s why we want to hear your ideas. By exploring new ways to care for and manage our spaces and places, you’ll help property colleagues to achieve their conservation aims and business objectives.

From valuing land to managing lettings to the big national issues like countryside regeneration, colleagues will look to you for the in-depth, up-to-the-minute advice and guidance. Like everyone here, you’ll be excited by the challenge of helping more and more people to enjoy our magical places and spaces. Whilst based at Clumber Park, you’ll provide a service which covers Hardwick Hall, together with Mr Straw’s House and The Workhouse.

About you
You’ll be a full member of RICS, with practical knowledge of land use and management, environmental issues, conservation and sustainable development. You also have your finger firmly on the rural pulse, so you know the issues communities are facing and what it’s like to live and work in the countryside. And just as importantly, you appreciate that today’s big rural issues call for innovative solutions. You’ll have an up-to-date understanding of what’s happening in the wider world of rural surveying (including relevant legislation). Analytical and methodical, you’re confident interpreting data and using your findings to influence colleagues and support them in the decision making process. A full UK driving Licence will also be required for this role.

Incredibly rewarding
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, 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.

About us
