£20,213 - £21,000 per annum

Based Govilon

About the role

The Canal & River Trust currently has a relatively small but important presence in Wales. This is your opportunity to develop that presence further, helping us to strengthen our relationship with Wales and our engagement with Welsh culture.

Your job will be to offer wide-ranging support to our Wales team. This will include everything from managing our finances, organising meetings, making travel arrangements, to Welsh social media and website content and even running our presence at the Royal Welsh Show. You will also be responsible for providing training, assistance and advice on the Welsh language.

About you

Ideally, we’re looking for someone who is fluent in written and spoken Welsh and has experience of websites and social media. Good attention to detail and an ability to meet tight deadlines would put you at a real advantage. We would also prefer it if you had a degree or equivalent qualification.

About us

One of the UK’s biggest charities, we maintain 2,000 miles of canals, rivers, docks and reservoirs, along with museums, archives and the country’s third largest collection of protected historic buildings – preserving them for future generations. We believe living waterways transform places and enrich lives. Achieving this vision will be a fascinating challenge. Come and be part of it.
