We are recruiting an experienced project manager to help coordinate the planning, delivery, and management of Renewal and Reconciliation: The Codrington Reparations Project in collaboration with a parallel post in Barbados. This is an exciting opportunity for someone with demonstrable experience in project management, who is comfortable working with a wide range stakeholders and partners at all levels and is committed to USPG’s aims and values. The work requires a sensitivity to the contested nature of history and active support for reparations for the transatlantic slave trade. Knowledge of the Caribbean region, history and cultures and an understanding of university research environments would be advantages. 

The project

Renewal and Reconciliation is a project that involves a partnership between the Codrington Trust and the United Society Partners in the Gospel (USPG). This is a reparative project in relation to the ownership and management of the 700-acre Codrington Estate. Between 1712 and 1838 the estate was run by USPG’s predecessor organisation, the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts (SPG). Under SPG’s management, enslaved persons of African descent were subjected to brutal and degrading treatment as well as the deprivation of their liberty. USPG has pledged 18M Barbadian dollars (£7M sterling) to be used over a period of 10 – 15 years in Codrington, Barbados to support a programme of activities composed of four workstreams: community development and engagement; historical research & education; burial places & memorialisation and family research.
