Could you be our next Education Intern?

If you have an interest in conservation, sustainability, education and rainforests, this is a great chance to make a real difference and gain valuable experience.

Founded in 1993, The Living Rainforest provides a real rainforest experience for visitors to explore unique habitats. The sensory experience allows people to connect with complex rainforest eco-systems by exploring over 650 species of plants and animals.

We are now looking for an outgoing, creative and motivated individual to take on the role of Education Intern. Working within our highly successful education and school visits programme, you will gain valuable experience in environmental and zoo education. You will be provided with a full training schedule for your time at the Rainforest.

About the role

You will help the Education team with creating holiday activities and displays, developing new projects and taking school bookings. You will also help deliver guided tours for our school visitors and meet and greet schools when they arrive.

This is a voluntary role with expenses covered for six months initially. There will be the option to extend to one year after review.

About you

The successful applicant will be educated to degree (or equivalent) level in a relevant subject. You will have excellent organisation skills and be able to work on multiple projects at once. You will also have strong interpersonal skills and be able to work with a wide range of age groups.

Previous experience of working with children and young people is ideal but not essential as full training will be provided. Some knowledge of the National Curriculum will also be useful.
