Volunteering vacancies

A group of Groundwork staff and volunteers

Considered volunteering?

Are you looking to gain work experience and broaden your horizons? Want to fulfil your passion for environmental issues and community regeneration? Or do you simply want to spend a few hours a week working on projects which benefit your community? If so we can offer a volunteering opportunity to suit.

Volunteering at Groundwork can help improve your employability – in fact, many of our existing staff began their careers with us as volunteers. Or can help fulfil the requirements of your university or college course. You may even be looking to volunteer in your spare time after retirement or just simply want to get out, meet new people and give back to the community. Whatever the age, whatever the reason, from office-based volunteering, to practical ‘hands-on’ roles we have something to offer everyone.

If you'd like to find out more about any specific roles available, or have any questions about volunteering with Groundwork, please contact Stuart Alexander on: 0113 238 0601 or
