Job Opportunities

Holiday Club Leaders and Assistant Leaders

Our holiday clubs aim to encourage connection to nature by providing a wide range of exciting outdoor play based opportunities to participants aged 6-13 years old.  Our clubs have gained in popularity, and are a firm favourite for many local children.  We are keen to continue to offer activities that inspire nature connection, curiosity, teamwork, build skills, confidence and love of nature, and to cater for the wide ages and interests of participants.  

Holiday clubs run in school holidays during Easter (2 days), May half term (3 days), for the first 3 weeks of the summer holidays (4 days each week), and October half term (2 days), and we are keen to put in place a small team of capable staff to deliver this program.  It would be advantageous if the Holiday Club Leader can commit to the majority of dates listed, however we will consider sharing the role between Leaders committing to full blocks of dates.

Chalk Life Ranger - Creating Connections 

Part of the Changing Chalk project, Creating Connections (Lewes and Eastbourne) aims to actively engage and educate communities that neighbour the eastern Downland in understanding and caring for the nature and heritage of the land. The Chalk Life Ranger will establish greater links with marginalised groups and community facing organisations, building trust and providing a range of opportunities for participation.

We are looking for someone to join our small, friendly team based at the Linklater Pavilion on the Railway Land in Lewes. Applicants need experience of working with diverse groups of people on projects that focus on the natural world, and in providing different ways for people to get involved, including not only practical conservation but also art, close observation, outdoor learning and community led projects.

 

The role is full time, 35 hours per week, for a 4 year fixed term contract. Job share applications are welcome. 

Changing Chalk is a partnership of organisations working together for the future of the South Downs. By reversing the decline of the fragile chalk grassland, Changing Chalk is helping local communities benefit from the nationally significant landscape on their doorstep.


Led by the National Trust, the partnership connects nature, people and heritage. It is restoring lost landscapes and habitats,
bringing history to life and offering new experiences in the outdoors.
