Consultancy Coordinator

Please note - this job vacancy is now closed and we are no longer accepting applications

  • Closing date: 4 February 2020
  • Posted on: 21 January 2020
  • Contract: Permanent
  • Hours: 21 hours (3 days) a week
  • Salary/remuneration: £25-30k (pro rata)
  • Location: Flexible

We are looking for someone to join our team to work with the directors on the delivery and development of our consultancy services. Our consultancy work is wide ranging, but currently focuses on the creation of new business and governance models for parks, woodlands and horticultural land in rural and urban settings. Our clients range from local authorities to regional parks trusts, social enterprises, charities and heritage organisations.

We are actively looking to expand our services to the private market, including developers and landscape architects. This role includes both growing our proactive consultancy offer (developing services, products and training that will increase our impact), and expanding our reactive consultancy (responding to tenders and invitations). Take a look at our ex-colleague Hannah’s thoughts on our consultancy services, this role and our organisation here. This is a genuinely flexible and self-managed role.

You are a pragmatic idealist who shares our values and wants to work towards social and environmental justice. You have a track record of getting things done, and of working with clients, partners and stakeholders of different types to achieve change. You can turn your hand to desk research, facilitation, strategic planning and training. 

You might be working in a commercial consultancy and be looking for a more flexible and human centred environment to work in. You might be looking to return to work after having children and be keen to use your project management skills for social good. We are open to different mixes of experience and backgrounds, but we need someone who is:

  • Organised and can stay on top of project management, invoicing and monitoring, while remaining flexible to the needs of our clients and the organisation.
  • Comfortable with complex situations and with potential to be an excellent facilitator.
  • A creative thinker who can work across silos to create innovative new solutions and products. 

There is excellent scope to develop this role – either into a full time position and/or to grow a consultancy team.
