Part-time role (18hrs per week), 2 Years Fixed Term 

Green Sefton manages our special coast, parks and greenspaces: from our beautiful and internationally recognised coastline which supports some of the rarest flora and fauna in the country, through to our historic parks and gardens, smaller greenspaces, allotments and our sport, play and recreation facilities. In total, we manage around 5,500ha of land. The service also manages both inland and coastal flood risk and the Council’s tree stock, both in the greenspaces and street trees. One of our top parks is Hesketh Park in Southport which is a fine example of a Victorian Park, listed on the Historic Parks and Gardens Register. Sefton Council has been bequeathed funding to undertake improvements in the park through the Hesketh Park Legacy fund project.

This post offers an excellent opportunity to play a key role in the restoration of some of the main historic features within the park through the delivery of the Hesketh Park Legacy fund project. The post will coordinate and oversee the renovation of the heritage listed conservatory, the floral clock, decorative fountain, waterfall, other parks features and more. The post will develop the business case for the future use of the Conservatory, together with a maintenance and management plan for these assets and wider across the park, whilst working with other teams across Green Sefton, volunteer/community groups and the wider stakeholders.

Sefton Council is a metropolitan borough on the North West coast of England. It is a varied borough with some of the most affluent and deprived communities in the country, and is known for its natural beauty, and green character. It is a great place to live, work and visit.
