The ‘Tin Coast – Connecting people to landscape’ project needs an enthusiastic and experienced project manager. The Tin Coast partnership has the aim that tourism should be developed in a way that supports local communities and positively impacts upon the heritage significance of the area around St Just and Pendeen. Having recently been awarded funding by the coastal community fund, we now need someone to move this work forward.

This is a fixed term role to March 2021 and hosted by the National Trust. A driving licence will be essential for this role.

What you'll be doing

  • Partnership working – including working with businesses, private landowners, local councils and communities.
  • Tourism, marketing and brand development.
  • Development of infrastructure – including transport, signage /interpretation, public realm and access.

We are looking for an experienced Project Manager or tourism professional who is excellent at working with people and building relationships to ensure the successful development and progression of the project.

The project needs to be completed on time and on budget and using the National Trust project management framework, you will be managing inter-dependencies and risks and working closely with the Tin Coast partnership and the National Trust staff as host organisation.

With several areas of activity, you will need to draw on your experience of leading and managing multiple work streams in order to co-ordinate partners effectively, helping them to keep track of deadlines, find the most favourable option to complete the task and ensuring this is delivered within budget. As you monitor the success of your activities, you’ll take overall responsibility for project budgets, financial reporting and governance.

You’ll achieve all of this through collaborative working and great information sharing across the partners. Working with stakeholders both internally and externally (including local community, statutory bodies and funders) you’ll influence where necessary to ensure results are achieved. This will be a highly varied and exciting role and working through others will be vital.
