As a Learning Project Officer, you will be delivering projects which aim to increase people’s connections to their local green spaces, resulting in better understanding, confidence, involvement, wellbeing and connection in the local community. You should have a strong track record of delivering and managing community engagement and learning projects which create a lasting impact.
