Become a Volunteer Officer (VO) - Recruiting now!

Make 2017 a year to be proud of. 

Grab your chance to volunteer with the UK's leading practical conservation charity!

Either as a stepping stone to your career in the environment sector or as personal development, the Volunteer Officer scheme is a unique experience and highly rewarding.

Learn practical skills while working on practical conservation projects in and around Leeds.

You will be responsible for organising and leading tasks and gain experience in volunteer co-ordination and project management. You will also have the opportunity to get involved with other projects and events, including fundraising, educational activity days, publicity and marketing.

As a Volunteer Officer you will be trained by our experienced staff, as well as receiving formal training through The Conservation Volunteer training programmes. You will receive training in Leadership, Health and Safety, Tools, First Aid, Midas, Safeguarding, and more. As you will be working with a diverse group of volunteers, training will also be provided in Mental Health First aid, working with people with learning disabilities, and Equality and Diversity.

You would need to commit to 3–5 days a week for 6 months.
