Further information

The Stockton and Darlington Railway took only five years for completion, from the lodging of the Bill with Parliament in 1820 to the historic first journey on the 27th September 1825. Can you follow in these tracks, by taking only five years to bring about the renaissance of the railway as a major visitor attraction and driver of economic change, as Project Manager for the Stockton and Darlington Railway Heritage Action Zone (HAZ)?

We are seeking someone with the flair and skill to help us deliver an ambitious programme that will form the building blocks of an international celebration of rail heritage and ingenuity, due to take place in 2025 across Durham and the Tees Valley.

You will need to be able to champion the vision of the Rail Heritage 2025 Board and manage key elements of the HAZ programme. You will need to work with the community, businesses and other stakeholders to facilitate and deliver projects that not only tell the 1825 story but also deliver economic, social and housing outcomes.

Ideally you will have experience of delivering historic building projects and can demonstrate that you can manage tasks to time, quality and within budget.

You would be hosted by Darlington Borough Council but would work across Durham and Stockton on Tees and within an extended team from the local authorities including the Tees Valley Combined Authority and Historic England.

For detailed information on this role, please refer to the Job Description and Person Specification.

For a further informal discussion, please contact John Anderson, Assistant Director – Economic Initiative, on 01325 406322 or email john.anderson@darlington.gov.uk
