Birmingham Trees for Life is looking for a new member of the team to take on the role of Communications and Liaison with schools, community groups and volunteers. Jane Edwards, who has been BTfL’s Schools and Community Liaison Officer for over a decade, is leaving to enjoy her retirement, and will be greatly missed.

A key aim of BTFL is to involve school children, local groups and other volunteers in hands-on tree planting and related activities across the city. To help BTfL to do this, they need someone with an interest in the environment and experience of working with schools, volunteers and community groups – and good communications skills of course!

Key areas of work are:

Communications – using the website, email, and social media and attending meetings as appropriate.

Schools and Community Liaison – liaising with schools and local groups to arrange attendance at tree planting and related events.

This is a self-employed ‘contractor’ role, working from home.  Hours will be flexible and variable (majority likely to be in school term time when tree plantings and other on-site activities take place).  Occasional weekend working will be required. 

So if you, or someone you know, would like to help to get the people of Birmingham involved with trees, check out the BTFL website blog here for more information:

The closing date is 28th June, and CVs should be sent to
