Job description

An exciting new opportunity has been created at the City of London Corporation for a ‘Head of Development & Partnerships’ within North London Open Spaces. 

About Us

The City of London Corporation manages 11,000 acres of land in and around London that is enjoyed by millions of visitors annually. North London Open Spaces (NLOS) – a subdivision of the City Corporation - is comprised of a portfolio of some of the United Kingdom’s most iconic public urban greenspaces. These include Hampstead Heath (inclusive of Golders Hill Park and Parliament Hill Fields), Highgate Wood, Queen’s Park, and West Ham Park. These spaces host over 12 million visits each year and are home to spectacular vistas, ancient woodland, diverse wildlife, a zoo, club and world class sporting and athletics facilities, iconic landscapes, built structures and heritage assets, numerous and varied recreation and play facilities, and other unique offerings that contribute to making London the most liveable large city in the world. 

The role

This exciting role within NLOS’s senior management team was created to help bring greater strategic alignment across NLOS and its charities and to better capitalise on new and existing opportunities. The post is critical to ensuring that we maximise the resources available to us through increased income generation and by forging strategic partnerships across multiple sectors and fields that allow us to increase and leverage support for each charity and provide a world class customer experience, while protecting and preserving green spaces of international significance. All activities will be undertaken with a priority to conserve the natural spaces we oversee, and to ensure that income generated at each site is reinvested back into the charity/site where it was raised. 

As a member of NLOS’s senior management team, the postholder will be responsible for overseeing a diverse and complementary portfolio, including income generation, strategic partnerships, marketing and communications, event and license management, volunteer and engagement programmes, and strategic partnerships. They will lead a newly created team with diverse and complementary roles, fill remaining team vacancies, and create a cohesive approach and narrative. As a member of NLOS’s senior management team, they will work closely with colleagues and the Superintendent to create and implement new opportunities to further improve these four iconic green spaces. 

The ideal Candidate

This is an exciting role with a diverse set of responsibilities, and we understand that applicants are likely to have significant experience and expertise in several, but not all, areas within the remit. We encourage applications from applicants with experience in several areas and who also have a proven track record of continuous learning and delivering with and through teams they have led. 

Given the breadth of influence and responsibility of this role, the successful candidate will be a proven professional with a demonstrable track record of fundraising and development, income generation, partnership building, and delivering results in a fast-paced and complex operations environment. Creativity and vision will be critical features of success, and we expect that the role will evolve over time.

If you are eager to join an exciting organisation, thrive in a fast-paced workplace, and are inspired by the chance to help conserve iconic green spaces of international renown that support people, wildlife, and the planet, then we want to hear from you. 

Benefits Include

  • Competitive salary, including Inner London Weighting, with clear incremental progress points
  • 28 days annual leave, plus 8 bank holidays annually
  • Pension scheme operated in accordance with the Local Government Pension Scheme
  • Employee Assistance Programme, including mental wellbeing support
  • Corporate learning and development programme
  • Bicycle loan scheme
  • Travel card scheme

Closing date: 12 noon on 20 May 2024.

First round interviews: Likely to occur week commencing 3 June 2024.
