Maintenance Co-ordinator

As we restore more and more canal, so the task of maintaining it becomes more challenging and important. We need someone to fill the key role of setting the policy, identifying the resources we need, planning the tasks along the line, and recruiting the teams to do the work, in collaboration with local branches.
