Do you love the outdoors and want to shout about it??

Do you want to turn your environmental  degree theory into practical activity?

As part of an exciting project, we are looking to take on an intern to train in the delivery of both formal and informal outdoor education sessions.  We are looking for an enthusiastic individual with a passion for the outdoors, the natural world and an interest in working with children of all ages.

Ideally the successful applicant will hold a degree in the earth sciences, countryside management or education. You will be keen to develop skills in environmental education and take part in aspects of woodland management.  You will need your own transport, as Nower Wood is not accessible by public transport, and you will be expected to do some weekend working but the post offers flexibility to meet our needs and yours.  An age related minimum wage will be payable to assist the candidate.  Whilst we need to comply with the requirements of the HLF project, the Trust is keen to ensure a valuable training experience for the successful candidate.   Depending on interests and personal situation we can offer a full time post over 6 months (April – September) or part time over 12 months (April-March).

The project Surrey Wildlife Trust will be delivering is the Outdoor Woodland Learning in Surrey (OWLS) Heritage Lottery Funded project from March 2017 to March 2018 at Nower Wood Educational Nature Reserve in Leatherhead, Surrey.  The aim of the project is to increase the understanding and appreciation of our ancient woodland heritage in Surrey through engagement with the local community.  This involves the delivery of curriculum based and informal education sessions to all ages as well as open days, holiday clubs, birthday parties and working with volunteers.

To apply for this exciting opportunity, please send a completed application form, available on our website, www.surreywildlifetrust.org to Louise Shorthose, Outdoor Learning Manager, Nower Wood, Mill Way, Leatherhead, KT228QA or email to louise.shorthose@surreywt.org.uk by midday on Wednesday 22nd March 2017.
