This role will help with all aspects of community engagement work with South Bedfordshire communities (North Chilterns Chalk). The role offers valuable development of knowledge, skill and experience in a wide range of aspects of conservation education and wildlife engagement.

The Voluntary Communities and Wildlife Officer will undertake a wide range of tasks. These will include supporting the delivery of community events and activities, and outreach programmes to a range of audiences.
