The latest edition of CJS Professional is now online, read it in full here: www.countryside-jobs.com/Professional/current.htm   You may need to refresh your browser.

At CJS we love to get feedback and we'd love to read yours.
Every two years we run our biennial reader surveys and this year for the first time we're looking for input from the readers of CJS Professional.  What you tell us in these surveys helps shape the future direction of CJS, in the past readers have asked for more wildlife jobs and we've done our best to source those; have suggested that we included news and more information so we did. Your views really are important to us, we read every single survey returned and your suggestions have helped shaped CJS.  Please complete the survey online by clicking through to this month's edition.
And just in case helping CJS is not enough incentive we have some lovely things to give away: The first 100 surveys returned will receive TWO Weekly downloads FREE.   
One survey drawn at random will receive a Membership Package to The Campaign for National Parks and one survey will receive a copy of The British Wildlife Photography Awards: Collection 4
