Lancashires Living Seas Project Officer

An exciting new role funded by Coastal Communities Fund to deliver a programme of inspirational and engaging marine activities that will raise awareness about the importance of Lancashire’s Living Seas, as well as help boost tourism and engagement with wildlife on the coast.

The post holder will organise a wide range of activities both at visitor centres and out on the coast that will inspire a wide range of people and connect them with their marine and coastal environment.

Family focussed activities will happen in places such as the Rossall Point Observation Tower, Wyre Estuary County Park and Heysham Nature Reserve, and on the beaches in Fleetwood, Cleveleys, Blackpool, St Annes and Lytham. The post holder will work with the Local Authorities to improve access and produce wildlife trail leaflets, interpretation and delivering wildlife walks.

We are seeking an enthusiastic individual with a can do attitude and ability to train and support local community groups and volunteers to undertake activities that promote a shared vision and ensure a legacy to the project.
