Parks Activator

Salary: £22,000 pro-rata

Term: Fixed-term contract until December 2022

Hours: 30 or 37.5 hours a week

We’ve been awarded funding to create a Nature Recovery Network across Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole’s parks and open spaces. The project will transform some of our area’s green deserts into wildlife-rich sites and will create habitat and species resilience by linking existing biodiverse sites to a wider network. We will work with residents to achieve this, empowering them to care for their parks, reconnecting them with nature and educating them about the environment.

This project is funded by the Government’s Green Recovery Challenge Fund. The fund is being delivered by The National Lottery Heritage Fund in partnership with Natural England and the Environment Agency.

We are looking for three enthusiastic, nature loving Parks Activators to help us bring eight parks to life across Bournemouth, Christchurch & Poole throughout 2022 as part of our Nature Recovery Project.

You’ll deliver a programme of activities to increase the local communities’ engagement with and use of their local park, educating them about the environment. You will also manage a programme of physical improvements to increase the biodiversity of these spaces.

If you enjoy being outside in nature and inspiring others about the environment we’d love to hear from you. You’ll be joining a small team of passionate Parks Activators who you’ll collaborate and share your learning with as you develop your skills in the environment sector.
