A fixed term post until December 2016

Salary: £7,800 per annum

We are looking to recruit an assistant for our reserves management team to work with volunteers on habitat management and nature reserve maintenance activities across the Tees Valley. This post is connected to our project ‘From Blue to Green – Nature-based interventions for mental health’ and will therefore mainly involve supervising and coordinating teams of volunteers who may have enduring mental health and/or learning difficulties. This post offers excellent potential for the staff member to develop professionally as well as providing a highly rewarding working environment.

The ideal candidate will have excellent interpersonal skills, and please note that we would value practical skills and experience over academic qualifications in selection because of the nature of the role. A current full, clean driving license is essential.
