GFB Social Action Work Opportunity (part-time, £12-£15 per hour)

Posted on

Green Future Building (GFB), a not for profit social enterprise, supplies an innovative range of nature conservation products from its Elland Bridge manufacturing workshop – with the aim of connecting young people with both nature and eco materials, whilst developing the skills and knowledge that employers look for.

After a highly-successful initial placement bringing together GFB and Halifax’s Project Challenge, an exciting opportunity has now arisen for someone flexible, reliable and with practical skills. You will work on a pilot project to extend the partnership and make a difference in the lives of more young people #Iwill.

You will be a self-starter with a hands-on background (joinery preferred); within easy reach of Elland; and able to work outdoors, motivate young people and handle safeguarding and monitoring accurately and discretely.
The role would suit someone interested in wildlife conservation, but it is not a requirement. This is part-time, flexible working to suit both the candidate, GFB and Project Challenge, with opportunities for extension subject to funding.
