They will be responsible for developing a volunteer programme and providing information about the island to visitors. They will work with individuals and groups on the island and produce leaflets, posters and text for use on the Trust website. The post requires good verbal communication skills in Welsh and English. Period of post: 6 months, 1st May 2013 to 31st October 2013. Annual salary equivalent: up to £18,000, pro rata.
firstname.lastname@example.org applications need to be in by 12 noon on Friday 8th March 2013.
The Bardsey Island Trust owns and manages Ynys Enlli as an exemplar of sustainable Welsh Island life, with an active island community, maintaining a wildlife-rich environment and enhancing the lives of people - those that live locally and visitors. We aim to maximise the opportunities for people to visit the island, both as day visitors and for longer periods, offering the opportunity to understand the importance of the island, its buildings, its history and its cultural importance. The post of Island Information and Volunteer Officer is a new post in 2013, part-funded by the Countryside Council for Wales. The purpose of the post is to increase the number of volunteers contributing to the running of the island and the Trust and to provide information to a wide range of audiences about the importance of the island and the work involved in running it.
You must be able to take a full part in the life of the island, becoming a member of the island’s community and a member of a team. This will mean working closely with other members of the island’s community and you must be ready to respond with the appropriate assistance to other sectors of the community when others require your help.
This is what the island looks like on a summer's day:
