New to Nature – Nature Communications Assistant

We have an exciting opportunity for an individual to join the team and develop their skills in communications and environmental management. 

We are looking for someone to join our team to help us capture, communicate and promote the work that the team of staff and volunteers do across the many rivers of the Forth. This is an exciting role for someone who believes that sharing conservation work beyond the normal channels is important for the future of our natural environment. This role will encompass a variety of communications channels including social media, film, podcasts, photography, and traditional media e.g. press releases. This role will help to explain the varied and critical work that Forth Rivers Trust undertakes across a year, from scientific fish surveys to working with young people to learn about river, to working with engineers to survey and remove structures from rivers, to planting trees in remote landscapes. This is an exciting opportunity to bring your own interests and skills to nature conservation organisation and gain further skills and a vibrant portfolio, for what can lead on to a secure area of employment in the nature and charitable/voluntary sector.

We’re particularly interested in receiving applications from young people (aged 18-25) who are from ethnically diverse backgrounds, who are living with a disability or are from low-income households.

This is a unique opportunity to try something new, and to take a first step on a career path where you can make a real difference. The natural environment needs you!

Application closing date – 12pm Friday 17th February 2023
