We are seeking a Plastics Project Officer to join the Preventing Plastic Pollution Project, currently jointly funded by the European Union European Regional Development Fund Channel Manche Programme and the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The Plastics Project Officer is a new role at the Trust. The role will work closely with the Plastics Project Manager and local partners to deliver a programme of education and engagement on the River Medway in 2022; all focussed on catalysing behavioural change around plastic pollution. Activities will range from pop-up information stalls to river cleanup events to school outdoor education sessions; there will also be scope to design and trial new tactics towards the goal of behavioural change.
