We are looking for a highly motivated, energetic and passionate individual to join our Communications and Engagement Team as Earth School Coordinator.

Founded over 35 years ago by our patrons, Sir Martin and Lady Audrey Wood, Earth Trust is an environmental learning charity and guardian to some of South Oxfordshire’s most loved greenspaces. We provide access and opportunities for people to discover, appreciate and respect the natural world via the Oxfordshire landscapes that we look after, including the iconic Wittenham Clumps.

This is an exciting time as we are in the process of a transformative project to build a new Gateway to our 1,200 acre flagship farm and iconic visitor destination. This will reshape our access and learning facilities enabling us to develop our engagement work. This role will have challenging targets to raise our Earth School profile, increase school visits and numbers of young people engaged as well as increasing income.

The ideal candidate will have experience of working with a broad range of children and young people in an outdoor environment. Being flexible and dynamic are key to this role, as is the ability to work independently and as part of team. You will need to be enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the outdoor environment, using your creativity to engage and create long lasting memories for children and young people.

You will demonstrate excitement about the Earth Trust’s strategic direction and a strong belief in your capacity to make a positive impact and to meet targets and objectives.

The role is primarily based in our office set in breath-taking countryside in South Oxfordshire.
