In this role you will develop and lead an exciting variety of ongoing and on-off activities that support young people aged 11-25 to develop the knowledge, practical skills and confidence to take action for nature and take steps towards a career in conservation.


If you have the ability to inspire and motivate young people, excellent teaching skills and experience in practical conservation, we want to hear from you. You’ll need a full driving licence, and be willing to work some evenings and weekends.
