Transport from our office to the working site is available.

Other volunteering roles
- Reserve Advisory Group and User Forum meetings, which local residents can attend to find out more about how the Trust manages its nature reserves, ask questions and give input. We would love to hear your opinions and ideas, so keep an eye on our events page for the next meeting taking place near you. For more information email email@example.com or call us on 0114 263 4335.
- Office-based or events-based volunteering, for those who would like to help out with administrative tasks in the office, or offer support at local events or help us to raise much-needed funds. We’re looking for people who are organised, friendly, outgoing and helpful, and can offer as many or as few hours as you like. We’re happy to work around the time commitment volunteers are prepared to make. This is a great way to gain experience and make new friends. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 0114 263 4335.
- Volunteer Living Landscape Assistant roles, based at our head office, for those willing to volunteer with us for two to three days a week for a minimum of three months. This opportunity may suit those with a placement requirement as part of a university course, and will include assisting the Nature Reserve Managers in the delivery of management plans for each reserve, including helping set up and deliver projects and funding bids. For more information email email@example.com or call us on 0114 263 4335.
For corporate groups who wish to get out of the office and get a little closer to nature, our Outdoor Learning team offer a range of nature-themed workshops, bushcraft experiences and corporate team-building days to suit your requirements. Contact Chris Grice on firstname.lastname@example.org with your group’s details, including numbers, available dates, and the type of experience you’re looking for, and we’ll arrange for our Outdoor Learning team to sort out the perfect team-building event for you.
If you are a small group of work colleagues who are passionate about the wildlife and natural environment of Sheffield and Rotherham and want to get hands-on and make a difference, it may be possible to accommodate you as volunteers on one of our regular Community Work Days. There is occasionally a need for some extra pairs of hands on Community Work Days to help with specific or seasonal tasks. Please contact Chris Grice on email@example.com with your details.
