Are you passionate about nature conservation? Are you committed to reducing the risk of local flooding? Can you work with schools and communities to raise their awareness of sustainable drainage and responsible water use?

Yorkshire Wildlife Trust is a dynamic, local conservation organisation and seeks to appoint a ‘Soak it Up’ Project Assistant to work on a new and exciting campaign that is being delivered in partnership with Yorkshire Water.

You will support the Project Officer in the delivery of engagement workshops and assemblies in schools across North and East Yorkshire, as well as assist with the design and installation of Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) on each site.

You will have experience of working in schools and with volunteers. In addition you will be self-motivated and able to manage your own time whist also being able to work as part of a team. A full driving licence and access to a vehicle is also essential as many of the sites may not be accessible using public transport.
