Heads-Up: BC Access & Waterways Job!

Post by GregS »

OK - British Canoeing has just highlighted an Access & Environment vacancy...

...which closes on Monday lunchtime - so 8th January. 2018!


Looks like the post might have been live since mid December.... but I'm not sure how anyone here was supposed to notice!

As far as I can tell, the only mention outside of the generic Jobs page is on the UK Sport Website - which I'm sure everyone here visits regularly!

Anyway... gist of the job:

British Canoeing wrote:We are looking to strengthen Places to Paddle team and the successful candidate will be required to improve waterway access and delivering British Canoeing’s environmental awareness campaign. You will lead on issues of environment and conservation; developing guidance, advice and content around sustainable canoeing behaviour.

It's a full time position (37 hours per week) – permanent - Based at the National Water Sports Centre, Holme Pierrepont, Nottingham - Salary Up to £30,000

British Canoeing wrote:The ideal candidate will be passionate about protecting and enhancing the paddling environment. Will be able to liaise with key partners, volunteers, paddlers and government to champion the need for change and therefore we are looking for someone who is a confident communicator, who can negotiate with and influence a range of groups and partners.

Applicants for this post will require significant experience and knowledge of the environment, and conservation; as well as the current situation with respect to access to and from the water.

Due to the nature of the work the role and to be successful in the role, the role holder must be willing and able to work the hours to get the job done. This will include evening and weekend meetings and travelling with overnight stays.

I've created a news story about the post here and have got it on social media here: Facebook, Twitter

Perhaps they should be advertising for a new head of the HR Department

Probably one of those 'someone lined up internally but required to advertise it externally' situations....
