The Conservation Volunteers – The Community Volunteering Charity
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:
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 ha of green spaces across South Yorkshire. Reporting to the Operations Leader you will be part of a team responsible for delivering a busy programme of community engagement projects.
This Senior Project Officer role is based from our office in Doncaster although some home working may be required.
Working as part of our supportive team, sometimes independently, you will be supporting community engagement on various sites throughout the South Yorkshire sites. The Senior Project Officer role will have a focus on volunteering for the team as well as engaging with local communities and communicating with partners and the general public whilst on sites. There will also be the opportunity to work on health based programmes and site events.
You will also occasionally carry out various patrol inspections, keeping the sites clean and tidy and carry out planned and reactive maintenance. You will also assist with the maintenance and use of a range of different resources including vehicles and tools.
TCV require the individual to have experience of overseeing the recruitment, induction, delivery and evaluation of our volunteer programme. We will also require you to have experience of running and supporting community events.
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 50 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.
Join in, Feel good.
