Personal Assistant. 

Part-time. 

Full job description click here

 

I am searching for a candidate in South Devon to join my growing business in the position of personal assistant, supporting myself in creating and delivering inspirational and educational digital content and in-person talks/workshops on sustainability, growing food and nature connection.

I’m looking for someone fun, dynamic and on the ball! With a firm grasp of social media (and its role in business and marketing), a high level of proactivity, brilliant organisational and administration skills, with punctuality at the forefront and a shared love and respect for nature, who’ll run a tight ship! 

This is a fab opportunity for someone with a passionate desire to work in a job with a positive impact on people and planet.

 

This is a flexible role, working either remotely or with the potential to work from my home, garden or the hedgerows and get your hands dirty! 

Activities would likely evolve over time working together, I imagine this would be a long term role with room for growth!  

How to apply:

If you’d like to get involved and reckon we’ll get along please send over:

 

● Your CV

● Previous/current job experience

● A short covering letter for consideration

Description: Gardening can be an exclusive, and even environmentally-damaging, practice. Historically, those with access to land have set the parameters of what a garden should look like and who can enter. High walls, locked gates, manicured lawns, prescriptive plants and plenty of pesticides are a thing of the past.Gardens should surround us and be accessible to all. They have the potential to be varied and generous spaces which reflect local communities.Join us in conversation with community leaders working across the UK to provide access to gardening for all.We will be joined by Poppy Okotcha, Sara Venn, Sui Searle and Ashley Edwards.
