Bradbourne Lakes, Bringing back blue nature

The Projects Manager will be responsible for the development and delivery phases of the Bradbourne Re-bourne project, which is a programme of restoration and activity supported with funding from the National Heritage Lottery Fund (NHLF). It is a partnership project led by Sevenoaks District Council working with Kent Wildlife Trust, West Kent Mind, Historic England, Bradbourne Residents’ Association, South East Rivers Trust, and many other partners.

Bradbourne Re-bourne will secure the revival of Bradbourne Lakes. The project will not only restore the 300-year-old engineering marvel of interconnected lakes and waterfalls. It will herald a complete renewal, addressing the needs of today and building a strong foundation from which the lakes, their blue and green nature and the committed community who cherish it will thrive for the long term.

With your experience in capital project management and funding, you’ll be responsible for ensuring all project work is delivered to a high standard, on time and within budget. Alongside this, you’ll review and update the project activity plan as needed to reflect feedback and community needs, ensuring that it remains engaging and creative.

You’ll be comfortable managing budgets and providing regular reports on the progress of the project. In addition, you’ll actively raise the profile of the project, celebrating achievements, and working with a variety of partners and stakeholders.

This role will be based at our Direct Services Depot in Sundridge but with the requirement to travel to other locations within the district. We currently operate a hybrid working model for the majority of our roles where your working time will be divided between the office (2-3 days) and home working (2-3 days).
