Are you aged 17-24, with a passion for the environment and a desire to contribute to community wellbeing through a connection to Nature? If you are, why not take your first steps into Green Wellbeing, through a traineeship with Myplace.

Myplace is an award-winning green wellbeing partnership between Lancashire Wildlife Trust and Lancashire and South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust. Thanks to funding from the Green Recovery Challenge Fund, we have the opportunity to offer two trainee positions, for people aged 17-24, with the Myplace project, based in either Central Lancashire or Greater Manchester. We are looking to recruit two highly motivated, enthusiastic and committed individuals, with the determination to actively contribute to natures recovery and improving mental health in the community.

As a trainee with Myplace, you will work alongside Project officers to deliver practical sessions with regular groups as well as stand-alone community events. Successful applicants will be able to demonstrate their interest in biodiversity and the natural world, alongside empathy with people struggling with poor mental health.
