If so, then a Volunteer Officer position with The Conservation Volunteers (TCV) 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 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.

Although this is a voluntary post, many Volunteer Officer go on to permanent jobs with other environmental organisations.

TCV 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 the Skelton Grange website and send it back before the closing date of 9:30am on Monday 19 May 2014. Interviews are scheduled for the Tuesday 27 May 2014, and the start date will be as soon as possible following this.
