Volunteer Positions

We couldn't carry out the work we do without the help of our fabulous volunteer team.  If you're looking for a chance to refresh your skills, gain experience or simply do your bit to help the Chilterns, we're particularly interested in hearing from people who can help us with the following positions.  But if you have any other skills and experience you think could benefit the Chilterns, please do get in touch - we'd love to hear from you!  Just drop us a an email on communications@chilternsaonb.org telling us a bit about yourself, and letting us know how you'd like to help.

1. Volunteer Communications and Media Assistant

If you have skills in communications, social media, website management, marketing or graphic design, this is your chance to play a crucial role at the heart of our busy office, helping to create high quality communications which raise the profile of the AONB.  You'll be working under the direction of our Communications Officer, and will join a fantastic team who help produce content for our social media, website and more.

2. Volunteer Administrative Assistant

There's always plenty of things happening at the Chilterns Conservation Board.  As well as our day-to-day work in landscape and conservation, we're also home to a number of large, Lottery-funded projects, a Chilterns-wide Walking Festival and other local events.  We work with a wide range of community groups, charities and volunteer organisations across 324sq miles of Chilterns Countryside and beyond on a daily basis!  If you're looking to gain or refresh skills working in administrative capacity in a busy office environment, there's always something to do.  Whether you can offer a one-off, short-term commitment or you'd like to join our merry band of volunteers who kindly help us out regularly on days which suit them, we'd love to hear from you.

3. Chilterns Walking Festival, Administrative Assistant (with opportunity to develop)

The first Chilterns Walking Festival took place in May 2017 with a programme of 90 walks and events and great publicity.  We now wish to build on this success and continue developing the festivals (two per year in May and September).  We are looking for some volunteer help to support our Walking Festival Project Officer, for a few hours a week, ranging from administration to more challenging tasks with a chance to be creative. Even if you can only offer a couple of hours a week we would be interested to hear from you. A job description is available here.  For further details please contact aweiss@chilternsaonb.org

4. Photo library project assistant & photographer

We are looking for a volunteer to help us edit and organise our image library. We have lots of great images but the system needs organising to make the most of it.  This might be a good summer project for a student looking for work experience or an ongoing project for someone with an interest in photography.  If you can offer time over the summer, or one or two hours a week, we would love to hear from you. A job description is available here.  

Or, if you're a photographer who loves to capture the Chilterns, we're always on the lookout for new photos we can use for publicity purposes - from sharing on social media or as part of the formal documents we produce.  People, heritage, wildlife and landscapes - the possibilities are endless!
