Application deadline: September 25th 2017

Craven District Council, in partnership with South Lakeland District Council, Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority and the Lake District National Park Authority have been successful in gaining funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund / Arts Council England for the project Great Place: Crossing the Watersheds.

The Programme Manager’s role will be to develop a range of digital, economic, cultural and social initiatives and activities to find new ways to work, new partnerships and new descriptors to retain and attract younger people to live and work in our Great Place.

You will be outward looking, experimental and exploratory, to see how the distinctiveness of our beautiful rural place with its exceptional quality of life can both retain and attract a new generation of dynamic individuals that will drive forward the future economy of our rural communities and contribute to the resilience of our culture, economy and communities.

You will be based in Skipton, voted one of the best places to live in the UK, and your role will focus along the rural corridor linking Skipton (Craven) in the south and Grasmere (South Lakeland) in the north, including the market towns and rural hinterlands, extending into both the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District National Parks.

You will be supported in this post by a core Board of creative professionals, working alongside economic development, local authority and national park colleagues.  This is a transformative, exciting and wide ranging role with many challenges and opportunities.

The successful applicant maybe entitled to relocation support up to £5,000 subject to the terms of the Relocation Policy.
