Join Bathscape to cover maternity leave to support delivery of a five year programme of events and activities aimed at reconnecting people to the countryside around Bath. This is an exciting recently-started project, made possible by players of the national lottery and funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

Working as part of a small team and with our Partners you will help recruit and support our volunteers, encouraging them to take part and to develop new skills, whilst tracking their progress. You will coordinate the work that they do, which will mainly be outdoor practical conservation and people engagement roles. There will be opportunities for developing our social media and communication strategy. The post will be mainly office-based though with occasional opportunity to join outdoor volunteer work parties as well as overseeing some outdoor events.

You will need to have experience in a similar role, motivating volunteers and working with a diverse group of people and organisations. People skills and admin skills are essential. Experience of working with people from our target audiences would be a great advantage.
