Work For Us

Vacancies

Thanks for visiting our Jobs page. Sorry we don’t have any vacancies at the moment but please keep checking or – if you’re interested in volunteering with us – please visit our volunteer pages because we’re always looking for people to help with our work.

For example, at the moment we’re looking for an Honorary Treasurer.

If you’re passionate about the countryside and have a good head for figures, we’d like to talk to you. Visit our volunteer pages to find out more.

Planning

It’s a very busy and challenging time for us as we are responding to several Local Plan consultations as well as the many speculative greenfield planning applications that NPPF’s land supply policies have encouraged. We’re looking for a number of volunteer planners to work with our staff and local groups. The roles would ideally suit planners retiring from local government or private practice who share our concern to promote genuinely sustainable development in the right places, give communities a proper say in the decisions that affect them and prevent unnecessary damage to the landscape.

The work can be tailored to suit your availability and your specialisms, but there is wide range of activities that we need assistance with, including Local Plan consultations, influencing planning applications and helping local communities and activists to work with the planning system to best effect.

Fundraising, events and marketing

We’re always looking for more volunteers to help at events, with publicity campaigns, and for the Boundary Walk. Contact Julie Gough to find out more.
