The Role

Chelsea Physic Garden wants to recruit up to 8 young people aged 16-24 to join our Youth Panel, which has 6 current members. Youth Panel members help make sure we represent and become a place for young people. You will have the opportunity to learn about the Garden and the work going on behind the scenes. You will have a key role in programming multiple events in the Garden. We want to build awareness of Chelsea Physic Garden in our local community and wider audiences across London and the U.K. Engagement with different audiences, including young people, is a key goal for us and we want to listen to and empower young voices to achieve this.

In 2024, the Youth Panel will be working to bring 2-3 events focused on young people into fruition. This follows on from the success of the Youth Panel Takeover Day in 2023. The Panel will work alongside Chelsea Physic Garden staff, including the Community & Youth Engagement Manager, Public Programme Manager and the Head of Learning and Public Engagement. Please note that this is not a gardening role.
