Can you enable children and families to explore, learn about and take action for nature? Can you inspire and support people trying to make a difference for people and wildlife? If so, this could be the job for you...

We are looking a motivated and experienced playworker or environmental educator to join our Community & Engagement team as our Family & Early Years Lead. In this role you will take a lead role in developing and delivering our work with young families and the organisations supporting them.

You’ll need a full driving licence, and be willing to work some evenings and weekends.
