Using gardening to change lives!

Established in 1978, Thrive is the leading charity in the UK using gardening to change the lives of disabled people and providing training and consultancy to the Nature, Health & Wellbeing sector.

Social and therapeutic horticulture is the process of using plants and gardens to improve physical and mental health, as well as communication and thinking skills. It also uses the garden as a safe and secure place to develop someone's ability to mix socially, make friends and learn practical skills that will help them to be more independent. Thrive’s horticultural therapists help people of all ages and disabilities to improve their physical and mental health, social skills and wellbeing.

As a member of the Training, Education and Consultancy team, the Training & Education Officer will play a key role in developing and delivering training in Social & Therapeutic Horticulture and related subjects across classroom, outdoor and web environments.

The successful candidate will have a confident and professional manner, experience of delivering training, have a qualification in or good practical experience of horticulture, and knowledge/experience of working with people with a disability.

This is a vital role within an expanding part of Thrive’s activities, where energy, initiative, organisation and flexibility will be rewarded with opportunities to develop your knowledge and skills in a field which is gaining increasing recognition amongst health and social care policy-makers.
