Summary: The Conservation Volunteers of the United Kingdom date back to the 1950’s in their efforts to preserve the green spaces around England.
The Conservation Volunteers work with thousands of people across the United Kingdom by helping them discover, enjoy, and improve local green spaces to create healthier and happier communities. The projects that volunteers are involved in are in urban and rural areas that include tasks like planting trees and wild flowers, building stiles, clearing footpaths, and creating new food growing projects.
The organization promises that you will know how “good it feels to be part of a team making a real difference to a valued outdoor place” and “that every day you will learn new skills, meet new people and make a difference.”
If you love working with this organization enough, you may want to consider getting a paid position with them. You can expect the staff and traineeship positions to go quickly, especially since The Conservation Volunteer organization is proud to uphold a Living Wage accreditation. This means they pay their employees an hourly wage that is significantly above the current national minimum wage.
They are currently hiring for three positions – Project Officer, West Lindsey Project Officer, and Business Development Manager (Maternity Cover) Internal Candidates Only.
