What is the role: Wind and Solar Farm Education Tour Guide
Who for: Westmill Sustainable Energy Trust
When: Guided tours of the site mainly take place during the working day 10:00am-2.30pm Monday to Friday. Occasionally they are in the early evening or at the weekend, but guides can make themselves available for which ever tours suit their availability.
Where: Westmill Wind and Solar Farms, near Watchfield, Oxon, SN6 8TH
What is involved: We are looking for volunteer guides to take school and other educational groups around the renewable energy site, once or twice a month. No knowledge of renewables is needed just enthusiasm and an enjoyment of talking to people, particularly children. Tours normally last 1.5 hours and take place outside.
Why you should sign up: Here is a wonderful opportunity for someone who is concerned about climate change to increase understanding and acceptance of renewable energy and promote positive solutions.
Skills required: An ability to speak engagingly to groups of up to 15 people, including groups of children.
Support provided: Full training is provided. Expenses are paid for travel at a cost of 45p / mile.
References are not required for this role and neither is a DBS check as you will never be left on your own with children.
