We are hiring an Education & Engagement Officer!

Thursday July 14th 2022

We are looking for someone to fill the role of NWHG Education & Engagement Officer – to work with communities in the Geopark to engage them with the ACT Geopark program and climate action activities.

This is an important opportunity for an enthusiastic and hardworking individual to work closely with the Geopark Manager, Geopark Geologist, North West Sutherland schools, communities in the North West Highlands Geopark and visitors to involve them in the ACT Geopark (Access, Connect & Take-part in the Geopark) programme.

The ACT Geopark programme will deliver a suite of projects over a three-year period to help people access, connect with, and take part in UNESCO Global Geopark activities. The main outputs of the program will be educational enrichment for school age children, a young geologist’s club, a marine heritage ‘blue route’ and a pilgrim’s trail. Alongside these we will work with artists and makers to communicate the significance of the region’s geological heritage to a wider audience than ever before, helping communities and visitors to form deeper connections with their landscapes through arts and science communication.
