Try your hand and do some good.
Wanting to start your career in countryside conservation and don't know exactly where to begin? Dip your toe in the water by being an occasional volunteer or taking part in some volunteer work days and conservation tasks is an excellent way to 'try before you buy' to see if the real hard labour of conservation work is for you.
If you've already decided that the countryside is the place for you but need that vital experience then take on a longer term volunteer placement.
If you're stuck in an office all week they're a wonderful way to get into the great outdoors, feel the wind in your hair, give your muscles a workout and leave with a visible reminder of your efforts by joining a volunteer work task, a friends of group.
We have lots of adverts for all of these voluntary roles on the website and today have transferred from CJS Focus on Volunteer (published in August) all the adverts for roles that are still available.
There's something for everyone, so have a look and find the role that suit you.
