S2R are reaching out into communities in Dewsbury, to improve people’s wellbeing by introducing them to nature and outdoor activities. We are looking for individuals with a grass roots knowledge and connection with these communities, a broad range of outdoors skills and the ability to guide and inspire others to use nature to improve their own wellbeing. Experience of working with people who have mental health issues or other vulnerabilities is an advantage.

 

You will be connecting with people in communities and working alongside partners such as Kirklees Council and local community centres to organise and facilitate activities for small groups of adults and sometimes families. This might include walking, crafts, planting and growing and outdoor cooking, but don’t worry if you can’t do it all. We strongly encourage you to bring your own passions and skills to this job and we will support you to integrate your ideas into your role.

 

These roles will be part-time and you may need to work flexibly across the week. On occasion, in order to meet the needs of community groups, facilitation needs to take place outside of office hours or on weekends.

 

Your own transport will be an advantage, but not essential. You must be self-motivated as the role requires independent working, but you will be supported by and managed as part of our existing outdoor team.

 

S2R is a registered Mental Health and Wellbeing Charity.

 

S2R prides itself on an open friendly culture and practices co-production in service delivery for participants, staff and volunteers. Everyone is encouraged to reach their potential in a kind, sharing organisation. We celebrate diversity and welcome all applications.

 

You must be willing to undertake a DBS check.

Experience of working with people who have mental health issues or other vulnerabilities is an advantage.

You will be facilitating small groups of adults and sometimes families in workshops such as fire lighting and cooking, walking, crafts, planting and growing, but don’t worry if you can’t do it all. We strongly encourage you to bring your own passions and skills to this job and we will support you to integrate your ideas into your role.

These roles will be part-time, and you may need to work flexibly across the week. On occasion, in order to meet the needs of community groups, facilitation needs to take place outside of office hours or on weekends.

Your own transport will be an advantage, but not essential, as the work is based across Kirklees.

In addition to delivering sessions, you will be expected to help develop our outdoor project, communicating with partners and participants, telling the story of the project through a variety of media and generally being part of this dynamic team.
