So much moor to explore…
The North York Moors is a special place and so we are looking for a special person to lead our Authority and champion our National Park for current and future generations.
National Parks and protected landscapes have never been more important for our country. They protect fragile habitats and species; provide wonderful landscapes for recreation, as well as being places where people live and work, and where cultural heritage is significant.
Passionate about the role of National Parks, our Chief Executive will need to be able to build great relationships with everyone who has an interest in our work and have a strong understanding of the interactions between farming, forestry and cultural and natural assets.
Whilst the primary focus of the role will be local, you will also be confident engaging nationally, whether that is in front of the media discussing major local planning issues or responding to the dynamic policy environment influencing the way we use our natural resources.
You’ll need to be an inspirational leader, both of the people who work for the Authority, but also in engaging people in support of the National Park.
Commercially astute, you will also need to be confident managing complex budgets and be creative and innovative as you secure maximum value from our limited resources.
If you understand why the North York Moors is such a special place, and want to help us make sure that it is used and cared for in ways that will maintain it for future generations, we want to hear from you.
To find out more, please contact Julie Myers on 07595 779915, Emma Dove on 0113 205 6108 or Michael Dobson on 020 7426 3968 at our recruitment partners GatenbySanderson for an informal discussion.
If you are interested, we would love to hear from you
