About the charity
This charity believes in countryside and green spaces that are accessible to all, rich in nature and playing a crucial role in responding to the climate emergency.
With a local group in every county, they’re advocating nationwide for the kind of countryside we all want: one with sustainable, healthy communities and available to more people than ever, including those who haven’t benefited before.
They stand for a countryside that enriches all of our lives, regenerating our wellbeing, and that we in turn regenerate, protect and celebrate.
They have worked for almost a century to support and promote the countryside, and they’ll be doing this for generations to come.
About the role
You will be responsible for coordinating training, developing online modules and promoting peer-to-peer learning, including at the charity’s autumn annual national conference. You’ll also support a number of networking groups and undertake some direct training occasionally. You will bring your expertise in understanding need and in structuring learning for adult volunteers and staff. The network of charities benefits from a wide range of expertise and specialist knowledge which you’ll build on to increase their capability to deliver work locally and in communities.
They are looking for someone with significant experience of structuring learning for adult volunteers and staff in a multi-site organisation, federation or network. Experience of managing an online learning platform and of supporting networking groups are essential. They also seek experience of gathering insight and evidence of learning need across a network and a good all-round understanding of local charities.
The group of 43 charities are across England and this role will involve reaching out to support and engage all of them, according to need. You will be based at either the national office in London or at home with regular travel across the English regions to connect with local staff and volunteers (Covid restrictions permitting).
The charity has an inclusive and friendly working culture. They involve staff in setting the operational plan and have a weekly all-staff meeting where information is shared. Staff are set annual objectives and have a performance review each year with joint feedback with their manager on their achievements and performance in the role.
