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.

We are looking for someone to join our team in South Yorkshire to help us care for some wonderful community woodlands.

TCV, in partnership with the Land Trust, engage local communities in the use and management of 465 hectares of green spaces across South Yorkshire. Reporting to the Operations Leader, you will be part of a team responsible for delivering a busy program of site maintenance works and inspections.

This is a part-time, temporary role mainly working Monday to Wednesday from 9:00am to 5:00pm (although some flexibility may be required) until September 2023.

Working as part of our supportive team, sometimes independently, you will carry out various patrols and inspections, keep the sites clean and tidy, carry out planned and reactive maintenance, practical conservation and land management tasks as well as engaging with local communities and communicating with partners and the general public whilst on site.

You will also occasionally support community engagement through volunteering initiatives, health programmes and events.

You will also assist with the maintenance and use of a range of different resources including vehicles and tools.

This is a new role, funded until September 2023 that will help us to continually improve the condition of these much used and well-loved sites. The role will be based at our based in Doncaster and most of your time will be out on site. Some home working may be required.

A bit more about us:
We recognise that each community and the people living there have different needs. Whether improving wellbeing, conserving a well-loved outdoor space or bringing people together to promote social cohesion and combat loneliness, TCV works together with communities to deliver practical solutions to the real life challenges they face.

For over 60 years we have adapted our work with volunteers to reflect the changing needs of communities in the UK and, by giving people a sense of purpose and belonging, we have empowered them to take control of their lives and outdoor spaces for the benefit of all.

Whilst our activities vary, our inclusive approach has remained consistent; bringing people and places together to create happy, healthy and connected communities for everyone.
