Job Description

YHA have an exciting opportunity for a Fundraising Executive Apprentice post on an 18-month apprenticeship programme which has been funded through our Generation Green programme.

We encourage applications where possible to be made via the National apprenticeship service website, link provided below.

Generation Green is a project hosted by YHA set to create opportunities for thousands of young people to connect with nature through new jobs, training, volunteering roles, residential and outdoor learning experiences. The project is run by the Access Unlimited coalition supported by a c.£2.5 million Green Recovery Challenge Fund* The coalition comprises YHA (England & Wales), The Outward Bound Trust, Scouts, Girl Guiding, Field Studies Council and the 10 English National Parks.

Generation Green capitalises on the combined reach of the coalition partners of more than two million young people. Together, Access Unlimited will provide more than 100,000 progressive opportunities throughout the project to connect young people to nature.

The environment workforce is one of least diverse workforces in England and this project has a specific remit to look at ways to respond to this challenge. From thousands of opportunities for light touch micro volunteering; to connecting some young people to nature and the outdoors for the first time, activities delivered through Generation Green will help create the spark for new groups of young people to see their career aspirations in the environment and outdoor learning sector.

* The £2,543,602 grant has been awarded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund on behalf of the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (Defra).
