CJS Notices
+ A slight shuffle - Although some may say at last!  We've split CJS Online according to sector.
+ Change in Charities, CJS is changing the way we support charities.
+ This edition includes CJS Focus on Volunteering in association with the National Trust

RSPB run a Volunteer Internship Programme, the Site Manager at Dungeness Nature Reserve talks about how the programme helped him secure a paid position. Trainee Countryside Rangers play a big part in the work of North Ayrshire Council.
