One of the questions we get asked most frequently is: “I think I’d like to work in the countryside – do you have a job for me?”

Getting a job in the countryside sector is not easy. You need a lot of experience, some qualifications and a good dollop of luck. CJS answers enquiries all the time from job seekers looking for their perfect job. A good way to find out what sorts of jobs there are within the countryside sector is to look at the job adverts, most of which have a brief description of what you’ll be doing and this gives you a rough idea of what the job entails. Volunteering is a great way to try a job and see exactly what it involves. It may be that you decide you don’t want to stand out in the driving freezing rain on a hillside; possibly being a ranger isn’t for you then. Read about CJS tips for securing employment here
