Working for the Northumberland National Park Authority

As well as thinking about whether you’re right for one of our vacancies why not think about whether the National Park Authority is right for you?

Our National Park Authorities have two clear purposes.

  • To conserve and enhance the natural beauty, wildlife and cultural heritage of the National Park.
  • To promote public understanding and enjoyment of the special qualities of the National Park.

And whilst delivering these clear objectives, we also have a duty to foster the socio-economic well-being of National Park communities. If this is something you’d like to be involved in then we’d love to hear from you for any suitable vacancies. If you are innovative and enthusiastic, with a flexible ‘can do’ attitude, then we want you to come and join our team.
