Overview

Generation Green is a project set to create opportunities for thousands of young people to connect with nature through new jobs, training, volunteering roles, residential and outdoor learning experiences.

The environment workforce is one of the least diverse workforces in England and this project has a specific remit to look at ways to respond to this challenge. From thousands of opportunities for light touch micro-volunteering; to connecting some young people to nature and the outdoors for the first time, activities delivered through Generation Green will help create the spark for new groups of young people to see their career aspirations in the environment and outdoor learning sector.

This is a unique opportunity to join our exciting project to engage young people with the beautiful and iconic Peak District using a youth-facing approach to nature connectedness.

This post is funded by Green Recovery Challenge Fund and has ambitious targets that will require the successful candidate to hit the ground running, working as part of a team but equally being self-confident and self-reliant. You will be well organised, an excellent communicator and able to work confidently and independently.

A commitment and enthusiasm to engaging young people in pro-conservation activity is a must! Delivering conservation skills tasks (e.g. habitat management, access infrastructure improvements, habitat surveys) is essential along with having an ability to support public engagement events. This role will be targeting groups of young people aged 12+ through youth groups, secondary schools and higher education from black and minority ethnic groups and low socio-economic areas.

If you wish to discuss this post further, please contact Lorna Fisher, Project Manager for Generation Green at the Peak District National Park Authority.

The post is based at our head office at Aldern House, Bakewell, but will involve travel to other sites within the National Park and surrounding communities to reach out to groups.

More information on our outdoor learning offer is available on our website.
