Sessional Environmental Volunteer Supervisor - Friends of Possilpark Greenspace
Friends of Possilpark Greenspace is a small environmental charity based in the north of Glasgow, whose aim is to tackle the substantial blight of vacant and derelict land in the area (nearly 70% of local residents live within 100m of a derelict site). This is approached through a variety of means, iincluding environmental improvements, enhancement of urban biodiversity and the running of various activities and events that utilise these sites, thus returning them to a positive community use.
FoPG is currently recruiting a Sessional Environmental Volunteer Supervisor to run regular sessions with volunteers across a number of sites in the area. Initially, this will be 2 x 2hr sessions per month @£30.00 per hour, with the possibility of additional hours (funding application pending).
The work is quite varied and can range from vegetation thinning, establishing wildflower meadows, supporting activity programmes to habitat enhancement works on the recently declared Local Nature Reserve, Hamiltonhill Claypits. The volunteers are also a diverse group from local families, professional organisations to corporate volunteers and schoolchildren.
This post would suit someone with a strong environmental background and education, with experience of working with a wide range of stakeholder groups.
