Wessex Rivers Trust (Wessex RT) is an environmental charity, dedicated to the protection and conservation of rivers and chalk streams in the Wessex area. Wessex RT is part of the Rivers Trust movement; the umbrella organisation helping to protect and enhance most of the UK’s rivers.

The Trust acknowledges that education and engaging with a wide and diverse audience is essential to sustain long-term interest in our local chalk streams and empower local communities to take ownership of these precious rivers. To deliver on this ambition, the Trust offers an education programme to all areas of Wessex and is delighted to now be in a position to offer river education sessions on the Isle of Wight.

Wessex RT is seeking to recruit a Variable Hours River Educator, based on the Isle of Wight, to mainly support the Our River, Our Water project, in partnership with the Rivers Trusts South East and Southern Water.

This post will be mostly remote/home-based working, on the Isle of Wight, with occasional day visits (2-3 a year) to Wessex RT’s Head Office in Salisbury.
