Want to combat negative perceptions about green spaces on housing estates and help change the face of London forever? This could be your opportunity to make a difference. London Wildlife Trust is embarking on an exciting new era of growth and development.
We want to make long-term, sustainable changes in the way that we engage with local communities.
We are looking for people to work with residents of social housing estates to support them to protect and enhance green spaces on their estate. To be successful you will have experience of delivering environmental sessions, ideally in an urban area. You will be aware of the barriers to involving communities in the management of green spaces and urban nature conservation and able to work to overcome these barriers. An excellent communicator, you will have the ability to inspire action by a wide range of people from diverse backgrounds.
The post involves working with residents and staff of the Registered Social Landlords on 3 estates in. We would consider two people on part-time hours to cover the post. The post will have an office base at LWT headquarters in Southwark, but will mostly be working out on the estates. This project is a consortium project led by London Wildlife Trust on behalf of partners and is supported by Natural England as part of the Big Lottery Fund’s Changing Spaces programme.
Do you have the vision and the commitment that we need?
