Their Volunteering Development Officer provides excellent advice on best practice in volunteer engagement so they ensure people from all walks of life can volunteer with them.  You’ll work with the network of 40 county-based charities and with them nationally to expand how they campaign for the countryside through volunteering. 

You’ll be working part-time (three days a week) in their Volunteering & Participation team, with the Volunteering and Participation Manager and Volunteering Development Assistant. You’ll also work closely with their Director of Communities and Participation and the Network Engagement team, who are part of the wider Communities and Participation Directorate.

This varied role helps to deliver their volunteering strategy, to find a way in for everyone to care for the countryside. You’ll be supporting volunteer coordinators, trustees and others to identify priority volunteer vacancies and assist in driving the recruitment of a diverse range of new volunteers.

You’ll encourage peer to peer networking with Volunteer Coordinators, welcoming new volunteer coordinators into the group and hosting network meetings. Working closely with the Volunteering Development Assistant you’ll be key to the delivery of both their national online volunteer induction programme and their national volunteer awards programme. These initiatives aim to give volunteers a warm welcome to the charity, and recognise and celebrate volunteer achievement.

You’ll receive training to use their volunteer management system Assemble and you’ll support others to make the best use of the system. You’ll be adept at collaborative working, and you’ll be supportive of increasing the diversity of people who volunteer for the charity.  You’ll also have the opportunity to work with the team to deliver training, and you’ll be able to develop interesting, impactful new volunteering roles with national and local teams.

They place high value on equality. They treat everyone with respect and consideration because they know it’s the right thing to do. They also know that diverse teams make much better decisions, are more creative and more stimulating to work in. So, if you join them, you will be able to help them put equality, the environment and diversity at the centre of everything they do. They hope you like the sound of the job and will take the time to apply!

They are committed to developing an inclusive and diverse charity in which everyone feels supported, valued, and always able to be themselves at work, because they recognise that a diverse and inclusive workforce is important in achieving their vision of a thriving, beautiful countryside for everyone. They therefore welcome applications from people of all backgrounds.  People from ethnic minority backgrounds and disabled people are currently underrepresented across the environment, climate, sustainability, and conservation sectors. If you identify as a person of ethnic minority background and/or disabled, they are particularly interested in receiving your application.
