Job description:
The Conservation Volunteers – The Community Volunteering Charity

Every day TCV works across the UK to create healthier and happier communities for everyone - communities where our activities have a lasting impact on people’s health, prospects and outdoor places.

TCV’s Green Gym benefits both the health and wellbeing of participants and the countless people who will enjoy well-managed outdoor places in the heart of their community. Green Gym is typically a 3-hour environmental volunteering activity. Volunteers work together to improve an outdoor space which could be a nature reserve, park or food growing space, by taking part in seasonal activities such as digging a pond, planting trees and building bat boxes. Green Gyms also enhance mental health and wellbeing of volunteers through increased contact with nature, the social benefits of group activity and helping people contribute something positive to their community. This role will specifically work with referred patients who are clinically stable to reduce relapse and improve rehabilitation.

About the role

Green Gym is developing new health roles in partnership with the NHS. The sessions will be run in the Green Gym format with a focus on working with people at risk of developing a cardiovascular event, presenting with chronic pain or other conditions where group-based physical activity may assist.

This is an exciting opportunity to join TCV’s growing Green Gym Team and contribute to an innovative new project. TCV are looking to recruit one Green Gym Health Specialist with specific skills in health & fitness including exercise referral and cardiac rehabilitation to run a Green Gym in Birmingham.

The project will be based in Birmingham Hospital grounds and the role will require experience of leading groups and an appreciation of practical conservation adhering to health and safety regulations, involving a diversity of volunteers, and working on initiatives to improve health and wellbeing. Excellent communication and interpersonal skills are required, as well as the ability to inspire and motivate a range of volunteers.

The successful candidate will have a passion for working with people to improve their health while improving the local environment. Support and training can be offered in practical environmental skills but a passion for the outdoors is essential. The role will require delivering projects to target and collecting data for evaluation.

The role may suit someone who is an appropriately qualified personal trainer or sessional worker within the exercise referral environment. TCV would welcome applications from exercise professionals or occupational therapists or physiotherapists.

A bit more about us

   For nearly 60 years we have adapted our work with volunteers to reflect the changing needs of communities in the UK and, by giving people a sense of purpose and belonging, we have empowered them to take control of their lives and outdoor spaces for the benefit of all.

  Whilst our activities vary, our inclusive approach has remained consistent; bringing people and places together to create happy, healthy and connected communities for everyone.

Join in, Feel good.
