Do you care about the world around you and want to do something to make a difference?

Do you want to work in the environmental sector, but lack the experience to land your first job?

Do you want to share your passion for the environment with the next generation?

If so, then a Volunteer Officer position with The Conservation Volunteers at Skelton Grange Environment Centre could be just the thing!  You could spend your time learning to teach children about the world around them, and trying your hand at a variety of practical conservation skills.  You will gain excellent work experience that will be valued by employers, develop a whole range of transferable skills, take part in a comprehensive training programme, and best of all join a friendly and supportive staff and volunteer team in a green oasis hidden away in South Leeds.

The kind of thing you will be doing depends on the role you are most happy with and we will have a discussion with you at the interview regarding this.

We are looking for volunteers who can commit to four days per week (Tuesday to Friday), ideally for six months or more (we can be flexible about the length of time). You don't need experience, just enthusiasm and the desire to work with children.

To apply please download an application form from our website and send it back to us before the closing date of 9am on Tuesday, 26th January 2016. Interviews are scheduled for Monday, 1st February and the start date will be as soon as possible following this.

The Conservation Volunteers are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  References for prospective volunteers will be followed up and an enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) check will be carried out before volunteering opportunities begin.
