Community Engagement Officer

Wood Green, The Animals Charity is looking for a fun, enthusiastic individual to support its continued commitment to children’s and adult education with this rare and exciting opportunity.

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.
