Community Engagement Officer

North Pennines AONB Partnership

Stanhope, County Durham
£31,346 - £34,728 pro rata

Paid • Part Time • Fixed Term Contract

Sectors: conservation & wildlife

Closing date: Wednesday, 28th April 2021  

We are looking for an organised and experienced community engagement professional, with a passion for our wild places and for making them welcoming and accessible to everyone, to lead a new project.

North Pennines - A Landscape for Everyone (ALFE) is a one-year NLHF funded project to help the AONB Partnership connect with, and learn from, a number of under-represented audiences. Our visitors and volunteers tend to be white, older and have access to their own transport. We seek to engage with younger people, those from deprived communities, and those from BAME backgrounds.

The Community Engagement Officer will work with at least 8 groups selected to represent a cross section of these audiences and to work with them to develop and train ‘champions’, and to co-design experiences and activities in the North Pennines, with the aim of increasing skills and confidence amongst these groups to visit independently in the future.

£31,346 to £34,728 pro rata (30 hours per week)
The post is temporary until end March 2022.

More information, including application details: 

Applications to be submitted by Wednesday 28th April.

We are also running an on-line Q&A session for anyone who would like to meet the AONB staff team who will be working with the successful candidate, before deciding whether or not to make an application. This will be held at 7pm on Monday 19th April on Zoom. If you would like to be sent the link, please email [email protected]
