Education Outreach Officers

Posted on

Size of Wales is a growing, ambitious Cardiff-based charity with global impact. We work to mobilise Wales to protect tropical forests and restore tropical forest landscapes as part of Wales’ national response to climate change. We do this through education and awareness raising activities in Wales (including an education programme in schools and our annual Go Green Day campaign) as well as supporting a number of overseas projects that protect and/or restore tropical forests. The projects are located in Africa, South America and South East Asia.

In 2020 we are launching our ambitious new 5-year strategy are expanding our exciting and popular climate change education programme across Wales. To deliver the programme, we are growing our team of Education Outreach Officers. We are looking for outstanding, engaging and creative individuals to join the team to run fun workshops and assemblies to primary and secondary schools in Wales (in both English and Welsh) as well as contributing to our bank of online education resources and supporting our other youth engagement initiatives.

Each Education Outreach Officer will be responsible for delivering the Size of Wales education programme in a particular geographical area of Wales for example north-west Wales (Anglesey, Gwynedd, Conway), north-east Wales (Flintshire, Denbighshire, Wrexham, north-Powys), mid-Wales (Ceredigion, Powys). We are also looking for a Welsh speaking officer to work in south-Wales alongside our existing south-Wales officer.  Areas to be covered will be agreed with each officer based on their location, no. of days to be worked and ability to travel.

You will be passionate about engaging young people across Wales on climate change and the importance of tropical forests in tackling the problem, inspiring them to feel hopeful for the future and encouraging them to be part of the solution. You will have experience of developing and delivering fun workshops, lessons or storytelling to young people of a variety of ages and are likely to be looking for part-time, term-time work either as a freelancer or employee.

Salary is in the range £22,000 – £27,000 FTE (£17,600 -£21,870 FTE pro rata for term time working) dependent on experience. The roles are 1-3 days per weeks, term time only. The package of benefits for employees includes a 6% pension contribution, 30 days (pro rata) annual leave including bank holidays and a flexible working hours’ policy. For freelance candidates, an equivalent freelance day rate will apply.
