We are looking for a passionate and engaging individual to join our established education team at RSPB Old Moor nature reserve to deliver our exciting education and events programme aimed at connecting young people with nature.

This is an opportunity to make a real difference enriching the lives of children and young people, inspiring them to care and learn more about the natural world through curriculum linked educational activities delivered in a variety of habitats. You will also provide meaningful, informal learning experiences to families who visit our reserve at weekends and in school holidays, helping them to engage with nature.

In addition to proven experience in a learning environment, you'll be a passionate communicator, able to enthuse visitors about nature. You'll need confidence and the ability to facilitate a day's education programme both in the classroom and in the field with a group of school children and their teacher. An adaptable teaching style is essential to allow the candidate to flow from formal education to informal education through our events programme. Candidates will need a flexible approach to working as occasional weekend and evening delivery may be required.
