Help wildlife and protect our special landscapes
Anyone can volunteer with Northumberland Wildlife Trust. With 60 nature reserves, two amazing visitor centres, offices and information programmes to run, there’s a wide range of things to do. And we can’t do it without you!
Volunteers are a vital part of NWT and we hope to give everyone a fun and rewarding experience. We have an action force of about 350 dedicated volunteers who contribute the equivalent of 22 full time employees each year.

Events and community engagement
Help to develop, prepare, organise and run our events and activities.
Volunteer Officer opportunities are generally six month long volunteer positions where there is a suggested commit of a minimum of two days per week. These roles offer an excellent opportunity for anyone looking to gain more experience working in a conservation environment. Roles can be varied including practical conservation activity or office based for example working in our marketing team or on our busy reception. Opportunities arise throughout the year and will be advertised here.
Applicants should apply by supplying a CV and covering letter direct to Lou Chapman email@example.com.
