About the role
The Landscape Connections Project Assistant will deliver nature based family learning activities at a number of locations as well as curriculum focused sessions to schools.
Activities will be delivered at locations within the Sheffield Lakeland Landscape Partnership areas, which are mainly Our Cow Molly (a working dairy farm) and Stoneface Creative. This will enable children, young people & families to learn about the landscape, its natural and cultural heritage and how to protect it.
The role will also support activities at Redmires, Wyming Brook & Fox Hagg, that encourage visitors to take action for nature, e.g. Supporting volunteer workdays & running interactive engagement activities at the nature reserves.
Landscape connections is a project funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. It is part of a larger programme of work to encourage more people to visit, get involved and take action for wildlife across the Sheffield Lakeland Landscape Partnership areas.
We are looking for someone who has experience of delivering similar activities to children, young people and families of all ages in a wide range of outdoor settings, including leading walks, activities, events or curriculum based sessions in a school setting that are engaging and inspiring.
The ideal person should be a people focused person who feels confident communicating with members of the public. You need to have an excellent understanding of nature conservation and ecology, with an awareness of farming — particularly dairy — in the UK.
The role will involve working as part of a small team and good time management and
organisational skills are essential.
