Avon Wildlife Trust offers volunteer placements positions from time to time. These aim to provide volunteers with work-based experience that can support career development, providing opportunities to take on more responsibility and learn new skills. Each placement is supported by a member of staff to encourage individual learning development and assist with targeted training opportunities.

Feed Bristol Grow Leader Placement - To Start in February 19

Grow leader placements form part of Feed Bristol's core crew and they are formal positions which require you to be able to commit to two days per week for nine months. You will receive a free place on our Grow Leader Course.

Developing skills in our Grow Leader team and giving people meaningful work experience forms the backbone of this inspirational community project. This enables us to engage with a broad range of community groups to demonstrate social impact and drive the project’s vision forward to become a centre of excellence that champions ecology and food growing. In the first three years we supported 40 people into employment through this process.

The placement volunteer days will be at Feed Bristol Monday, Tuesday Wednesday or Friday from 9.30am –4.00pm. For more information please see the attached role description. To register your interest, please email volunteer@avonwildlifetrust.org.uk
