The lead designer will be responsible for assisting in deciding on the most appropriate approach to interpretation of sites, creating unique, eye catching and memorable designs that are inspired by the Land of Oak & Iron and overseeing production/ installation of the pieces.

The lead writer will be responsible for producing interesting, accurate and accessible text for interpretation panels as well as being involved in some more creative writing for poetry installations within the landscape.

Proposals should be submitted to Lucy Chapman, Programme Manager, Groundwork NE & Cumbria via email ( ) by 5pm on Wednesday 19th October 2016. All submissions will be assessed and responded to within six weeks.
