Salary: £18,127 pro rata (32 days per annum)
Location: Cumbernauld, North Lanarkshire
Closing date: 12 noon, 4th October 2019
Since 2011, the Cumbernauld Living Landscape partnership has been enhancing, restoring and reconnecting green areas of the town to improve the environment for both people and wildlife. This award-winning partnership is now entering a new phase and needs a Learning Assistant to support its environmental education within local primary schools
We are looking for the successful candidate to have the skills, knowledge and enthusiasm to motivate, influence and encourage local school children to take a hands-on approach linking in with the major habitats and access works where appropriate, and to improve their school grounds for nature and people alike.
Applicants should be educated to HNC/D in a related subject, or have equivalent experience, and hold a first aid certificate or be willing to gain this qualification. You should also be an excellent organiser and natural communicator with a keen interest in social media. A vehicle is available to transport bulky teaching materials and equipment to schools across the project area, therefore a driving licence is desirable. Note as well, this post requires Protection of Vulnerable Groups Scheme membership.
The Creating Natural Connections project has been made possible thanks to financial support from the Heritage Lottery Fund and project partners.
