Volunteer

Volunteering is a great way to get stuck in and meet new people while working on things that matter to you! 

 

Without the support and commitment of volunteers, Friends of the Earth Cymru would not be able to carry out its important campaigning work. 

 

We value and appreciate the contribution that volunteers make to our success, and are committed to ensuring that volunteering is a rewarding and productive experience.

Sorry, we don't have any capacity to take on new volunteers at the moment, but this may change in the future.

 

What will I do?

Volunteers are involved in every area of Friends of the Earth Cymru's work from general administration through to campaigning and research. We aim to give volunteers specific roles and projects which support our work, and help volunteers develop their skills and experience. We recognise that people have many different reasons for wanting to volunteer and where possible we try to meet individual needs.

 

What will I gain?

As a volunteer at Friends of the Earth Cymru you will develop new skills and gain valuable work experience. You will learn about environmental issues in Wales and play an important part in the success of one of Wales' leading environmental pressure groups.

Expenses

Volunteers can claim for travel expenses - plus lunch if you work more than 5 hours per day.

 

Training

There are opportunities for our volunteers to go on training courses if necessary for their work. We run regular computer training at our London office. Volunteers may also be invited to attend our induction course.

 

Working hours

Normal working hours are 9.30am to 5.30 pm Monday to Friday. There's flexibility for volunteers to arrange mutually convenient days and times with their manager. However, we need volunteers to agree to regular hours each week and commit to these hours.
