Two new recruits at Heart of Teesdale Landscape Partnership
THE Heart of Teesdale Landscape Partnership has appointed two members of staff.
Alex Kaars Sijpesteijn will be the new partnership manager to take the Teesdale-based initiative forward over the next few years and Susie Lane has been recruited as maternity cover for community officer, Sarah Smith.
Ms Sijpesteijn has previously developed a similar landscape partnership in Cumbria and has also worked for Harrogate Borough Council and the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
She said: “I am looking forward to being part of the conservation of such a strong and beautiful landscape.
“It will be great to work on a project with such as variety of programmes.”
She will oversee the partnership’s programmes and projects and planning for the long term to ensure a lasting legacy in the local area.
Meanwhile, Ms Lane’s role will focus on community engagement and support, as well as promoting events and the work of the Heart of Teesdale.
She said: “I am really pleased that I have the opportunity to be part of such a great landscape partnership and I am really looking forward to getting to know the local community.”
