employment - positions vacant

At Conservation Volunteers we believe that we should offer everyone an opportunity to be involved in managing and protecting a healthy and sustainable environment. If you share that vision and would like to make a critical contribution to seeing it achieved, then consider joining our team of passionate and enthusiatic staff.

As a team, we make it possible for thousands of volunteers, both local and international, to join us every year to help plant thousands of trees, clear hectares of weeds, improve river health, save endangered species and protect our cultural heritage.

As a not-for-profit organisation we make use of various options to make our package as attractive as possible, but we also acknowledge that the people who join us do it for more than the money - it is about using your particular qualifications and skills to make a real difference.
