We are recruiting

We are recruiting a part time position delivering The Hawthorn Project.

We anticipate the role will begin on 18th September 2019. Please send your cover letter and CV to bec@tortwortharboretum.org by 30th August.

We run from 11am to 3pm each Wednesday during term time (12 sessions per term) at Tortworth Forest Centre, GL12 8HH. You should be able to arrive before the session starts and stay for an additional 30 minutes to discuss the session and help with monitoring and evaluation. This should be around 7 hours per week. You will also be paid one additional day per term for planning and evaluation.

The right candidate will have creative ideas to share and deliver in a woodland setting. Please take a look at the website to find out more about our sessions and what to expect.

We are more interested in what you can bring to the project than your formal qualifications, though we do run our sessions along Forest School principles and we are participant-led. You must be able to demonstrate experience working with individuals with complex needs.

Freelance rate will be £70-95 per day depending on experience, with an annual supervision and personal development budget allocated to your role.

The role will initially be for one term with an option to extend with the agreement of the project leader. You must have a current DBS check or we can run one for you but it must be confirmed before you can begin.

The post is paid for by The National Lottery Community Fund.
