Further information

An opportunity has arisen for a Durham Woodland Revival Community Engagement Officer until November 2023.

The National Lottery Heritage Fund (NLHF) has awarded Durham Woodland Revival £432,700 to bring together organisations from the forestry sector to develop woodland habitat networks through better managed forests, new planting and community involvement across a targeted area of 200 km2 in County Durham. This 4-year programme is worth over £820,000 in total.

This post will work with existing woodland groups, local people and communities within the Durham Woodland Revival (DWR) project area to improve their connection to trees and woods and inspire more people to become involved in looking after their local woods. The Community Engagement Officer will develop and support a network of volunteers and woodland community groups to work independently to help bring neglected woods back into good management, delivering multiple benefits for people and wildlife. This work will help reconnect communities and land owners with their woods, providing support to manage them for wildlife, timber and recreation.

Applicants should hold a degree in a related subject together with having experience in working with communities and volunteer groups to deliver conservation projects, along with the ability to communicate effectively and share knowledge with a range of audiences.

Interviews are scheduled to be held week commencing 7 October 2019.
