Anyone can volunteer at Northumberland Wildlife Trust! With 61 nature reserves across the county, an active education and events programme, and a busy office, we really appreciate help from our dedicated volunteers.
Whether you are happy to get your hands dirty on our reserves, enjoy helping out at events, or want to join our busy office team, we have a volunteering opportunity for you!
Volunteers are an important part of Northumberland Wildlife Trust and we hope to give everyone a fun and rewarding experience. We have an action force of over 250 volunteers who contribute around 180 days of work for us each month. Whatever your background, we can hopefully find a position to match your interests and abilities.
In addition to meeting new people and developing skills, volunteering with us brings many other benefits. We organise various training courses, from First Aid to brushcutter training, social events each year, and Call of the Wild, our bi-monthly volunteer newsletter keeps everybody up-to-date.
Volunteers really are the lifeblood of Northumberland Wildlife Trust. Why not read some of the experiences our volunteers gain from working with us, and find out more about Lou Chapman, our Volunteer Co-Ordinator.

Volunteer Officer opportunities
There are no current opportunities for Volunteer Officers, but please keep checking the website.
Volunteer Officer placements enable people to gain a range of skills and experience for a career in nature conservation. These roles are voluntary placements usually for 6 months, at a minimum of two days per week. As there are limited places and our opportunities generate a lot of interest, we use an interview process.
