Opportunity for an Education Guide at Tophill Low Nature Reserve

We are currently looking to recruit an Education Guide to share the value of water and waste water services with the visiting public when the brand new wildlife viewing centre at Tophill Low is opened later this year.

Tophill Low Nature Reserve is a 300 acre reserve which has a reputation as one of the best bird watching spots in Britain. It lies alongside the River Hull, four miles from Watton village, and is made up of a patchwork of woodland, marshland, grassland and reservoirs, which during the course of the year are sanctuary for over 160 types of birds. 

The viewing centre is due to open this summer and is predicted to boost visitor numbers to the nature reserve, (currently around 15,000 a year) and add value to the nature tourism sector in East Yorkshire.

Although the majority of visitors the Guide will welcome at the reserve are children, Yorkshire Water does welcome groups of all ages and interests.

Anne Reed, who manages our Education Programme said: "We’re very excited about providing a new educational resource for schools in the area and looking for the right person to deliver fun interactive sessions at our new centre. If you fancy talking not only to children but a wide range of our customers about all things water, environment and education we’d love to hear from you. The role is only being advertised on our website and social media channels and has a closing date of 20 January.”
