What we're looking for
We need someone to run and take ownership of our reserve workshop. The Aylesbeare staff and volunteer team are extremely busy taking care of all aspects of heathland habitat management. This requires not only dedication, skill and time, but excellent working tools and machinery to be effective and most importantly safe. This is a really important and valuable role and we need someone who will take pride with their organisation, care and maintenance of the tools. Tasks include:- -Maintaining and repairing all the tools to a high standard. Our preference is always to mend and repair rather than to buy new if it is safe to do so. -Keeping the workshop organised clean and tidy with systems in place for checking and maintaining the tools and machines. -Maintaining the vehicles and machinery, or organising their repairs and parts. -Assisting in the chopping of wood using our machinery and maybe to take control of our firewood sales procedure if you are the right person for it.
