Every day TCV works across the UK to create healthier and happier communities for everyone - communities where our activities have a lasting impact on people's health, prospects and outdoor places.


About the role:

The Project Officer will be managed by the Operations Leader and will be based at Sale Water Park, Sale, Manchester. Duties will be varied, and widespread across sites throughout Greater Manchester, so a flexible and energetic approach will be necessary.

Suitable candidates will have a good working knowledge and experience of practical conservation tasks and have experience of leading groups of volunteers, working with communities, schools and other groups. Excellent practical and inter-personal skills and experience of costing practical activities are required and experience of fundraising for projects is desirable. Familiarity with IT systems and use of social media to promote is TCV essential.

A willingness to undertake additional training to strengthen skills and experience is needed to enhance professional development.
