What we're looking for
Please note this is a non-RSPB role advertised on behalf of the Woodland Trust. The Woodland Trust is one of the UK's leading conservation charities. We have over 500,000 members and supporters and more than 1,000 sites all over the UK. We believe life's better with trees. We protect and campaign on behalf of the UK's woods, plant more trees, and restore ancient woodland, for the benefit of wildlife and people. This role is to support the work of the Great Trossachs Forest Project (TGTF), which is run as a partnership between RSPB Scotland, Forest Enterprise, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park and Woodland Trust Scotland. This unique landscape-scale project is one of the most significant native woodland projects in the UK for a generation. It is also one of the UK's largest National Nature Reserves. In 200 years, it will stretch over 160 square km at the heart of Scotland's Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. The role includes the planning, promotion and delivery of guided walks in the Great Trossachs Forest. Walks are expected to last a maximum of 2 hours and the volunteer is to liaise with Trust partners if support from staff is required to run these. In this role you will use your natural enthusiasm, people skills and your passion for nature, history and stories to help us engage with visitors to ensure that they have a rewarding experience during their visit to the woodland. Through the delivery of your walk you will also deepen our visitor's awareness of the work of the Trust and the opportunities available to those interested in supporting our work and visiting other Woodland Trust sites. An interview and two references will be needed for this role. As with all volunteer roles you will need to complete an induction. You will have the opportunity to either do this online or to attend an induction event.
