Assistant Development Officer (P/T)

HDAA has taken on the task of restoration and development of the Oak Road Fishing Pond with the aim of providing a fit-for-purpose facility for the local community.

 In order to maximise the opportunities that this work will provide, we are seeking to employ a self-motivated person for an average of 15 hours per week to assist our voluntary Development Officer in the following:


Helping to develop and run both short programmes and one-off events providing an introduction to angling for anyone in the following categories:

·         Young People and their Families

·         BEMs

·         Unemployed

·         Disabled

·         Retired

Developing links with local schools, youth and other community groups etc through which events can be promoted.

Working with the Friends of Oak Road to promote activities that align with the Friends’ objectives to attract more people to use the Park and its facilities.


Liaising with the local wildlife conservation groups to develop a management programme for the land surrounding the Pond that both enhances the site as a wildlife area and provides educational opportunities for schools, youth groups etc.

 The post, which will be offered for 12 months in the first instance, will involve some working during the evening and weekends (particularly during the summer months) and therefore applicants should be willing to be flexible with their working time to suit the availability of ‘client’ groups. The rate of pay will be £10per hour gross.

 Although a working knowledge of freshwater angling would be an advantage, the most important attribute we are seeking is someone who is enthusiastic and interested in the environment and the benefits which an outdoor activity (angling) can provide in helping to promote social cohesion and well being. However, the successful candidate will be offered the opportunity to become a Level 1 (and/or Level 2) qualified Angling Coach.

 Because the post will entail working with children and vulnerable adults, the successful candidate will be required to undertake a DBS (previously CRB) check.

 For an informal chat about the post, please contact either Mike Lee (07941 388 134) or John Mitchell (01482 842 197).

 To apply, send a covering letter explaining your suitability for the role, along with a Curriculum Vitae to

 Closing date for applications is 28 February 2014.
