Interested in improving health and access to nature for communities in North Yorkshire? We're looking for a motivated individual to join North Yorkshire County Council to help deliver an exciting health and nature project.

We’re looking for someone with a background in health and wellbeing and a passion for the natural environment to inspire communities in North Yorkshire to get outdoors and discover nature on their doorstep.

An interest in addressing the wider determinants of health, an enthusiasm for physical activity, active travel and the natural environment are all important in this role.
