New RGS job - helping people to Discover Britain

The Discovering Britain project of the RGS-IBG has been helping people appreciate the country by taking a walk through it for the last five years.

Phase 1 of Discovering Britain ran from June 2010 to January 2015 and was successful in developing a prestigious series of almost 150 geographical walks nationwide and an acclaimed street gallery exhibition, Britain from the Air (BftA). Together, the activities reached millions of people.

Phase 2, which is planned to run from February 2015 to December 2016, will build on this success with four more BftA exhibitions, including one in London, plus the new developments of shorter trails, explanatory viewpoints and an App, all of which will widen the scope of resources available for people to explore and learn about Britain’s landscapes.

Details of the job (and a few more) are on the RGS-IBG website. A rather fine place to work.

We seek an experienced project manager who is not only capable of managing the implementation of Phase 2 of this project but who is also passionate and knowledgeable about the landscape and geography of Britain and who has proven skills in writing engaging and informative resources. The person will be responsible for the overall delivery of the project to time, budget and agreed outcomes, as well as being involved in the creation of content and will work closely with the part time project co-manager.

Sounds like a rather fine job for someone...
Can't wait to see how the app turns out too.
