TCV is the UK’s leading practical conservation charity working with people from all sectors of the community in positive action to improve the environment.
Every day TCV works across the UK to create healthier and happier communities for everyone - communities where our activities have a lasting impact on people’s health, prospects and outdoor places.
The Stirling volunteer group carry out a wide range of activities in and around the Stirling area ranging from habitat management to improvements to community greenspaces. We are looking for a project officer who can engage with local communities and partners, identify valuable volunteer projects, source funding to support projects and deliver those projects with a team of volunteers.
The successful candidate will be an enthusiastic and energetic individual who can combine experience in environmental conservation, with experience of working with volunteers including those with additional barriers.
Other elements of the role will include, but not be limited to -
• Health and safety management, including producing risk assessments.
• Quantifying and ordering materials in line with procurement policies.
• Managing TCV’s local resources, including the office, tools, and vehicles.
• Assisting with controlling the project budgets.
• Engaging with appropriate local groups and partners.
• Using online and offline materials to promote TCV’s work to new partners and individuals.
A bit more about us:
We recognise that each community and the people living there have different needs. Whether improving wellbeing, conserving a well-loved outdoor space or bringing people together to promote social cohesion and combat loneliness, TCV works together with communities to deliver practical solutions to the real-life challenges they face.
For over 50 years we have adapted our work with volunteers to reflect the changing needs of communities in the UK and, by giving people a sense of purpose and belonging, we have empowered them to take control of their lives and outdoor spaces for the benefit of all.
Whilst our activities vary, our inclusive approach has remained consistent; bringing people and places together to create happy, healthy and connected communities for everyone.
