Volunteer coordinator

As we get more enquiries about volunteering, a volunteer coordinator is needed to meet demand for information and to ensure a positive experience for volunteers. This is an ongoing unpaid voluntary role. The role is likely to require up to 1.5 days per week worked flexibly to suit your own and the Farm’s requirements. Attendance at site work parties and other volunteer days will also be necessary on occasion. Attendance at steering group meetings which happen every 2 months would also be beneficial.
