Green Champions
Rate: £9.50 or £12.00 per hour (depending on project and tasks)
Hours: ad hoc/flexible (variable hours with some evening and weekend work)
Location: Essex and Suffolk

We are recruiting a number of highly enthusiastic and personable Green Champions to join our team and support a range of environmental projects that the Trust delivers. The Green Champions will work in teams and/or with other staff members to raise awareness of environmental issues that the projects are focused on tackling, using a variety of methods. This could involve (but is not limited to), attending local events to talk to members of the public promoting the messages associated with each specific project/campaign, community engagement in the form of survey collating, bin stickering, delivering informational letters and flyers. The environment will vary but will include working in residential areas, public spaces and businesses.

The successful applicants will be self-motivated with the ability to motivate others and able to act as team members. You will have an understanding and interest in environmental issues as well as current Groundwork projects. You will also have effective communication and social skills, a willingness to travel and enthusiasm and confidence at working with a wide range of people. We’ll make sure you’re given all the support and guidance you need and you will have the opportunity to become part of a highly successful organisation making a real and positive difference to your local area.

The positions will be ad-hoc and candidates will need to be flexible. We are looking for a number of people to join a team of Champions and take up opportunities as and when they arise. The positions will also include some evening and weekend working as required and a full driving licence and access to a car is desirable.
