We are seeking two River Stour Enhancement Project Volunteers to support our ambitious plans for improving water quality, biodiversity and habitats within the Stour catchment on the Essex-Suffolk border. 

This role provides the opportunity to gain hands on experience in a range of conservation projects and the chance to hone your practical skills and conservation knowledge. Tree aftercare, non-native invasive species surveys, in-channel restoration projects and supporting community projects are just some of the activities planned for the coming year. The role would ideally suit a recent graduate, or someone looking for a career change to the conservation sector.

Previous experience isn't necessary, however good organisational skills, motivation and a willingness to work outside in all weathers is essential.
