Get involved

There are all sorts of ways you can get involved in a Groundwork project. 

Our work stretches from Kent to Cornwall on a huge range of projects including horticultural work, waste and recycling, community events and working with schools in environmental and health related projects.

We also work extensively with young people providing training, apprenticeships and work experience, which help to teach new skills and assist in finding a job. 

Have a look at our major projects and case studies sections for a flavour of interesting and rewarding projects we deliver.

Work with us

Do you want to make a difference to people’s lives and communities? Perfect! We have a wide range of jobs based across the South of England. 

Take a look out our current vacancies. Keep checking back if you can’t find a job to suit you, we often have new projects and need additional staff. 


We love volunteers! They are the lifeblood of many charities and organisations. 

As a volunteer you have the opportunity to hand down your skills to others, to be involved in fun and beneficial projects, to make some friends and learn something new along the way. 

Many of our projects are outdoors, (even on the water in a couple of cases). Some require a good level of fitness as you may get your hands dirty - especially on one of our many horticulture projects. 

We looks after parks, gardens, private grounds, allotments, work with local authorities, run refuse and recycling centres, work in schools and with young people. You name it - we do it!

You can read more about volunteering here. We also work with businesses that hold  'corporate social responsibility’ days at our centres.

For more information or to enquire about volunteering with us contact your local Groundwork office.

If we don’t have a project immediately that you could get involved in we’ll keep your details and contact you once new opportunities come our way. 

Training and apprenticeships 

If you’re a young person looking for a training or apprenticeship we want to hear from you. 

We run projects across the whole of the South of England and could have something to suit you. Some projects run for a few weeks, some for a few months or a year. 

Many of our apprenticeships provide formal training (don’t worry, it’s done in a fun way to suit your needs) and you get a qualification at the end, which can help you to find a job or go on to find a higher level of training. 

If you look on the Latest News page you will get a flavour of the work you could be involved with and below you can watch the video of Harry’s Story.

Give your local Groundwork office a call or an email and ask about training and apprenticeship opportunities.  

You can see some of our current training and apprenticeship opportunities on our jobs page too.
