Youth Re-Imagined Engagement Officer
The Woodland Trust is the UK’s leading woodland conservation charity. We want to see a world where trees and woods thrive for people and nature. The Trust engages and inspires people to make their difference tackling the nature and climate crisis helping protect, restore and create our vital woods and trees.
The Youth Reimagined Engagement Officer will support the development of an innovative and varied programme of new youth engagement opportunities and routes to participation. The Youth Reimagined Engagement Officer is one of three roles created in a new team to help re-imagine the Trust’s whole approach to engaging young people. It represents an exciting opportunity for the right individual who wants to build their career in youth engagement within the conservation sector.
The role will involve:
You’ll be a motivated and positive person with experience of successfully building relationships with colleagues and young people.
You’ll enjoy working with ‘hard to reach’ and diverse groups along with a good knowledge of legislation in relation to safeguarding. You will ideally have previously assisted with the development and implementation of youth engagement programmes within the conservation sector.
You will have planned and delivered relevant events and public engagement programmes to younger audiences and overall have a passion for engaging young people for a good cause.
WHAT TO EXPECT BY JOINING A TEAM AND MAKING A DIFFERENCE
There’s no other organisation like the Woodland Trust. Joining the team you will be making your contribution to tackling the nature and climate crisis. In return, we recognise and value our people. You'll have our full support, training and opportunities for professional development, along with a contributory pension, life assurance, good holiday allowance and the opportunity to work flexibly from home.
OUR COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
At the Woodland Trust, we believe everyone deserves to have their lives enriched by trees and woods.
We also believe that our organisation should reflect and represent the full richness of human diversity in terms of background, identity, ability and circumstance. As groups of people currently underrepresented as Woodland Trust employees, we are particularly keen to receive your application if you are Black, Asian or minority ethnic, disabled or under 25. We are measuring our success in redressing this.
We are open to discussion of any adjustments or flexible working arrangements you may need to achieve your full potential at any stage of the process, and if you are successful in gaining a position with us, during employment.
We promise the only thing we assess within your application is how you have demonstrated your suitability for the job, and nothing else.
We reserve the right to close this vacancy early if we find the suitable candidate before the closing date.
Our Hybrid working model is an expectation of working from the office in Grantham a minimum of twice a month – this may vary from role to role.
