Job description

Our parks have been a real lifeline during the pandemic and more people have realised the importance of their local green space than ever before. It's time to give a little back.

This is an exciting opportunity to join the Your Park team and launch the first round of the Love Your Park Community Fund. This role will work directly with local voluntary groups to help them start brilliant projects that respond to local need in their park.  

You will coordinate all aspects of the first round of our small grant programme, from launch to evaluation, helping groups apply to run projects that improve health and wellbeing, nature and biodiversity and community cohesion for their community. You will also support an additional six community groups to overcome the challenges they face in new ventures in their park. 

If you love Bristol and Bath's parks and communities, this could be the perfect role for you. We are looking for a self-starter who is meticulously organised and loves working working with people. Previous experience of supporting community and voluntary groups would be preferable. 

Bristol and Bath Parks Foundation is an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate diversity and are dedicated to creating an inclusive environment for all our employees.

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, and therefore you may be shortlisted and asked to attend an interview (over Zoom) prior to the closing date of the advert. Therefore we encourage you to apply without delay as the post may be filled before the advert expires.

Application Instructions

Please submit your CV and a covering letter via Charityjob. We will be shortlisting and interviewing appropriate candidates as they apply. Please allow at least 1 week before expecting a response.
