Description

Suffolk Green Access is recruiting.

Suffolk County Council looks after 5600km of public rights of way, 5000ha open access, the England Coast Path National Trail and other forms of green access. Our vision is “to get more people using and enjoying Suffolk’s green access network.” Every member of the Rights of Way and Access service plays a part in making this happen, and you can be part of that team.

If you are looking to develop a career in promoting walking and cycling, or improving the public’s access to the natural environment, here is your opportunity. Suffolk is a county filled with natural beauty and over 50 miles of glorious coastline, and home to historic towns and villages. Challenges include ensuring new developments protect and enhance green access and responding to the climate emergency.

This role maintains the County Council's definitive map and associated records and makes legal orders in the public interest. The post will prioritise consolidating the definitive map. Therefore, we are looking for people who:

have experience / knowledge of Geographical Information Systems (GIS)

can work within policy guidelines and use own initiative to promote resolutions to problems

have strong research, analytical and interpretation skills

have the ability to keep up to date with legal changes and new legislation

have effective verbal and written communications in meetings, reports, letters, emails and by telephone to explain the complex nature of Rights of Way legislation to public / landowners and pressure groups.

Interviews will take place online, and training will be a mixture of online and in the office or field, where this can be done in line with Covid procedures. You will need to be able to work from home for the foreseeable future with an internet connection that supports training and operational delivery of the post requirements.

For an informal discussion only please contact Steve Kerr on (01473) 264745.

This organisation positively encourages the use of technology to communicate and engage, but in this role you will need to operate across a wide and rural area, so you must either hold a full and current driving licence and have access to personal transport or meet the mobility requirements of the role through other reasonable and suitable means.
