The Canal & River Trust is pleased to offer an exciting opportunity for a Lead Volunteer to manage the Jubilee Woodland at Caen Hill in Devizes.
Help us manage our new 60 acre woodland (that’s almost 15,000 trees!) and a small group of volunteers. Enhancing the biodiversity of the area and providing a legacy for future generations. The woodland was planted to mark the Queen’s 60 years as Monarch and includes wide grassy footpaths and verges planted with wild flower seed mixes to attract bees, butterflies and birds.
The role of Lead volunteer will involve coordinating existing and new volunteers, much of your time will be spent outside, looking after the woodland, a stone’s throw away from the office.
We are able to cover basic travel and out-of-pocket expenses and can provide training. We have an excellent track record of providing a wide variety of quality experience for our volunteers.
Interest in woodland management, conservation and wildlife.
Some experience of managing a small team would be advantageous.
