The Conservation Volunteers – The Community Volunteering Charity

Every day TCV works across the UK to create healthier and happier communities for everyone –
communities where our activities have a lasting impact on people’s health, prospects and
outdoor places.

About the role:

This role involves recruiting and supporting volunteers as part of employability and
conservation programmes within the Seven Lochs Project. The Seven Lochs Wetland Park is
Scotland’s largest urban heritage and nature park. The vision for the Seven Lochs Wetland Park
is of a new park of national significance, sustaining and enhancing a high quality, innovative
wetland environment that will:

  • Protect and enhance biodiversity and heritage
  • Promote health and well-being particularly for those with additional support needs and
    other barriers to engagement.
  • Contribute to environmental, economic and social regeneration.

As a key partner, the role will involve supporting local volunteers to gain Green Skills and
accredited training. It will also involve working with volunteers to develop and deliver
projects and conservation tasks that improve parks and greenspaces for people and wildlife. The
post holder will work to engage disadvantaged communities and those who have the most to gain
from accessing their local greenspaces.

A bit more about us:

We recognise that each community and the people living there have different needs. Whether
improving wellbeing, conserving a well-loved outdoor space or bringing people together to
promote social cohesion and combat loneliness, TCV works together with communities to deliver
practical solutions to the real life challenges they face.

For over 50 years we have adapted our work with volunteers to reflect the changing needs of
communities in the UK and, by giving people a sense of purpose and belonging, we have empowered
them to take control of their lives and outdoor spaces for the benefit of all.

Whilst our activities vary, our inclusive approach has remained consistent; bringing people and
places together to create happy, healthy and connected communities for everyone.

Join in, Feel good.
