Magdalen Environmental Trust

Environmental Education and Care Farming Officer

Salary: £22,000 - £23,000

Hours: Full time

This is a new vacancy within our excellent Learning and Wellbeing Team, which delivers the bulk of the charity's services.

Based on our organic farm, the Magdalen Environmental Trust provides outdoor environmental education to children and adults, and therapeutic / respite opportunities to people with more complex needs.

We work with a wide range of people including schools, families, charities and schools from across southern England. We are a leading Care Farm and are growing this provision. You can learn a lot about us from our website: www.magdalenfarm.org.uk 

The aims of our education programme are to help people make better decisions about how they interact with their environment and with nature, and to provide opportunities for those people, particularly children, to develop a love of nature. If they don’t love it, they won’t value it. Working with schools, (providing environmental education, Forest Schools and personal development for children), is our main activity through much of the year, and the main focus for this vacant post.

Personal development is also a key outcome, not least within our Care Farming services. Many of our Care Farming clients live extremely difficult and demanding lives. Our aim is to help them improve their mental and emotional resilience, and their ability to overcome these difficulties.

Please apply on the application form contained within the recruitment pack, which you can find here

Closing Date: 16/09/2021  Location: Near Chard
