The successful candidate will be responsible for developing and delivering practical conservation and environmental activities to both children and adults to increase knowledge and awareness of the natural world, to improve the natural environment and to gain an appreciation of the value of conservation work. It will involve working with children at school and at La Société Nature Reserves and other locations and introducing them to the various flora and fauna present. The successful candidate will be able to engage with children and produce activities for them. Additionally, the postholder will organise and supervise adult volunteer work parties for the purpose of conservation work.
