The role does not require any experience but it would be good if you are a good communicator, hard working with planning skills and an kind attitude. You will need to be willing to work outside 20% of your time, able to talk to small children and use your initiative. You also need to be self motivated as you wll be working form home much of the time.
Any understanding of teaching, ecology, nature, biodiversity, event planning would be great but not essential.
This is a really nice opportunity for anyone interested in supporting the community or the environment, it is really creative and interesting. The role is part time, 25 hours a week, to suit your needs and you will occasionally have meetings or attend workshops in Stratford upon Avon.
