We are looking for a new member of our team to help us engage with a wide range of people and raise awareness of the global importance of the peatlands of Caithness and Sutherland known as The Flow Country. 

You will volunteer alongside our Learning Development and Communities Officers to build upon our existing work and increase our reach across this large area and beyond. This includes supporting the development and delivery of learning sessions for primary and secondary schools, organising and supporting a programme of community events across the Flow Country, contributing to our marketing and communications work (for example producing press releases and social media). 

The Flow Country is the best blanket bog of its type in the world and a key resource in the fight against climate change. The Flows to the Future Project is far reaching, ambitious and aims to significantly increase the level of conservation management and promotional activities currently being undertaken.  

Training will be given in environmental education and engagement methods, event management, social media and digital skills, species identification and habitat management.

This role will involve working across the remote and beautiful landscapes of Caithness and Sutherland and the communities within them. You will be required to work evenings and weekends occasionally for which time off in lieu will be given.
