As our charity expands we are increasingly looking to employ suitably qualified and experienced freelance professionals to deliver our growing range of services in the outdoors.

We welcome volunteers to work alongside our professional practitioners and often support forest school trainees with opportunities to develop and extend their practice and range of experience. If you are interested in working or volunteering with us please get in touch.
