Job description

Are you under 25 and looking for an opportunity to become involved with an exciting new environmental outdoor learning project? 

Learning through Landscapes is excited to announce that funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund has been granted to run a 15 month project through their Green Recovery Challenge Fund.

The project will be delivered in partnership with Leicester City Council (LCC) and the Wildlife Gardening Forum (WLGF).

As part of this project we are delighted to be able to offer opportunities for under 25’s wishing to work in the outdoor learning sector. This under 25 stipulation is a funding and project requirement and has been made to address the lack of opportunities for young people in this age group aspiring to train as outdoor educators in one of the areas hardest hit by the pandemic.

The Support Officer post is a part-time post on a 0.2FTE basis and is to facilitate the participation of the Wildlife Gardening Forum (WLGF) within the “Polli:Nation for the next generation” (Polli:Gen) project in partnership with Learning through Landscapes (LtL as lead partner) and Leicester City Council.

The role centres on: a) Providing liaison and excellent communication between the WLGF coordinator, WLGF volunteers and community groups working within the Polli:Gen project and other participants. b) Coordinating production/distribution of high quality Polli:Gen project materials by WLGF volunteers & community groups. c) Providing administration and coordination help to free up WLGF Trustees to engage directly with the Polli:Gen project. 

This is an important role within this exciting new project, so if you have the skills and would like to join the team, please read the full information and how to apply and send us your application soon.
