Greenspace Development Manager

Grade I: £34,728 – £38,890 per annum

Post No: CL350 – 37 Hours per week


Location: Cannock


Following the restructure of the Parks and Open Spaces Division, we have a unique opportunity for Parks and Cemeteries professionals in a number of new roles at the Council. With an emerging new Parks and Open Spaces Strategy, Cannock Chase Council is committed to continue to maintain and enhance its highly valued Parks and Open Spaces. We are looking for some exceptional candidates who want to make a difference and strive in a challenging environment.


Benefits to you:

  • Flexitime Scheme
  • Local Government Pension Scheme
  • Discounted Leisure Centre Membership
  • 25 days holiday increasing to 30 after 5 years continuous service
  • Cycle Scheme
  • Free Car Parking


If you have a proven track record of delivering grounds maintenance and park services, preferably in a local authority setting and have the ability to lead a large and dedicated horticultural team, a fabulous opportunity has arisen to join us as a Green Space Development Manager.

The successful post holder will lead on shaping and implementing our frontline services using agile working techniques and IT generated work programmes and inspections. Consequently, we are looking for a Greenspace champion to bring together these two important services with the effective delivery of the council’s Greenspace service.

You should be qualified to HND level or equivalent in an appropriate subject area (e.g. landscape management, horticulture) and have substantial management experience and a valid full UK Driving Licence. You will have a thorough knowledge of horticulture and will ideally be a member of an appropriate professional body.
