We are looking for someone to help deliver the Walker Park Lottery Project. The project is jointly funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Big Lottery’s Parks for People programme and Newcastle City Council.

Following the recent restoration of the park the focus of the project has moved to a new phase which aims to engage the community and achieve the following objectives:
• Increasing the range of audiences using and enjoying the park
• Conserving and enhancing the heritage value of the park
• Increasing the range of volunteers involved in the park
• Improving the skills and knowledge about the park through learning and training
• Improving the management and maintenance of the park.

You will be based predominantly in Walker Park. A key aim of the post is to build community capacity creating opportunities for local people to help with the management of the park.

You will be supervised by the Ranger and will help deliver volunteer activities and events. You will work with community projects in the area and encourage their involvement in positive activities within the Park. You will be expected to be flexible with your hours of work and able to work some evenings and weekends.

We are committed to protecting and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expect all staff to share this commitment. This post involves working with children and/or vulnerable adults. If you are successful we will undertake additional recruitment checks which will include a check to see if you have had any criminal convictions and a check of police information.

Apply online at www.northeastjobs.org.uk.

As this post involves working with children, vulnerable adults or dealing with sensitive information, written references will be taken up and made available to interviewers before the final selection stage; even if you indicate otherwise.
