We look after more land than any other private landowner: Everything from coastlines and clifftops, to woodland and wildlife rich meadows. So, as you can imagine, Estate Management in the National Trust is a vast and vital area of our work. It always has been and always will be.
For us, it’s never just been about the here-and-now. We protect and open up special places and spaces so they can be enjoyed by everyone, for ever. That’s been our core purpose since the day we were founded in 1895, and the 21st century brings many more new challenges for us to rise to. How can we make sure we’re delivering exceptional quality estate and rural asset management to places with such diverse conservational needs? How do we look after landscapes that are pride of the nation, while optimising income so we can continue our important work? How can we effectively manage our breadth of tenancies to the highest standards? Estate Management is at the heart of the National Trust’s new 10 year strategy and although we’ve achieved some amazing things over the years, with ever-evolving needs, it’s crucial that we continue to be innovative and forward-thinking in our approach, which is why we need the very best talent in Estate and Rural Asset Management.
We’ve recently redefined our strategy and made some revolutionary changes to significantly improve how we do things in Estate Management. And joining our talented team, you’ll build on these strong foundations and take on unique, interesting estate management work and associated projects that will undoubtedly shape the future of the National Trust and all the property it owns and protects.
