Community Engagement Officer
The successful applicant will be responsible for developing and maintaining relationships with target schools alongside delivering pet care sessions to Primary, Secondary and some post-16 students within a school setting. You will also be responsible for delivering family and adult workshops on-site and throughout the surrounding counties; assessing community members’ needs to deliver the most appropriate sessions; and working alongside the wider team to source and book appropriate venues within target communities.
With strong communication skills and a proven experience of delivering formal or informal teaching sessions to children, adults and/or families, you must feel comfortable engaging with a wide range of people from a variety of backgrounds; a formal qualification is not essential. Equally as important is to have a passion to make a supportive, positive impact to pets and their owners.
The successful applicant will need to be self-motivated and organised with a flexible approach to working, as some weekend and evening work will be required. A DBS check may be a requirement for this role. If you do not already hold a transferable DBS, Wood Green will cover the expense of a DBS check.
