Volunteer Beach Clean Leader

Our Beach Care and Aware project is supported by Northumbrian Water and aims to improve the water environment along the coast for the benefit of its high-status national heritage and for our local communities.

The project will reduce the amount of damaging beach and marine litter whilst working to enhance the water quality of our coastal waters, beaches and inflowing streams.

What’s involved:
• Working with SeaScapes Beach Care officer to facilitate pre-organised beach clean litter picks.
• Distribution and collection of litter picking equipment at a beach clean.
• Providing practical advice and support to attendees during a litter pick.
• Ensuring bagged litter is removed from the beach to the identified designated pick-up location.

This role will suite you if you are friendly and outgoing, enjoy being active and outdoors in all weathers, are passionate about coast and denes, and care about the environmental impact of plastic and waste.

A full induction, training, PPE and equipment will be provided.
