Open Country is a Harrogate-based charity seeking to enable people with disabilities to enjoy the countryside. We achieve this through a programme of countryside activities, and the provision of information and advice.

We are looking for a committed and energetic team player to help develop the work of this innovative and inspirational organisation. Duties will include leading two weekly nature conservation work parties, running the Wetherby Tandem Club and managing our small minibus fleet. Some weekend work is essential.

The successful applicant will be fit, resourceful and have excellent organisational and people skills. Paid experience with a countryside organisation is desirable, but a proven pedigree in voluntary environmental or disability work will also be considered. A full driving licence is essential; a D1 entitlement desirable. 

Successful candidates will be required to undertake an enhanced DBS check.
