Fields in Trust protects and champions parks and green spaces in perpetuity across the UK. Established in 1925 we passionately believe parks and green spaces are the beating hearts of our communities with transformational powers to promote access, health and wellbeing, social cohesion and happiness. We work in partnership with landowners to protect their green spaces for good. We also champion and protect our green future at local and national level because the power of parks and green spaces transcends any one government brief and short-term decisions are threatening our longer-term legacy.
We operate from a pleasant, accessible office in Shepherd's Bush, about 300 metres from Central Line and Overground stations (not step free - one step/pavement).
Do you love making projects run like a well-oiled machine, managing your own projects as well as collaborating on cross-team sprints? If that's you, and you want to want to make a lasting difference for the environment, health and wellbeing and local communities, this could be the role for you. Fields in Trust are looking for an experienced project manager, with a keen eye for detail and the knowhow to elevate our project management processes.
The Project and Stewardship team are responsible for driving forward the organisation's core work to legally protect local parks and green spaces. The team manage two scaled protection portfolios aimed at protecting more parks and green spaces and also develop projects and partnerships that will innovate what the charity does. Excellent project management of our portfolios and initiatives is vital for ensuring timely protections and robust stakeholder management, so that we achieve our strategic aims.
We need someone who is organised, rigorous and capable of good stakeholder management. You will come with the desire to share your PMO knowledge and improve current processes, and ready for the challenge of reimagining and managing our smaller-scale protection portfolio. You will be confident in building relationships, collaborating and co-creating ideas that further our protection mission. Working across the whole charity team, you'll be proactive, capable of delivering projects from concept to impact and evaluation and coordinating multiple areas of work.
Fields in Trust is actively seeking applicants from diverse backgrounds and would welcome applications from POC project managers.
Reporting to the Head of Projects and Stewardship, you will work as part of the Projects and Stewardship team, providing a central project management resource to support the successful delivery of our parks and green space protection portfolios. This role will manage the smaller-scale protections portfolio and support the effective monitoring and delivery of the strategic portfolio and innovation programmes.
