We're looking for a part time (22hrs) communications assistant to join our team at a very exciting time. The post would suit a versatile and resourceful individual with broad communications and marketing experience, in particular the ability to produce and manage website content using a Content Management System (specifically Wordpress) with confidence. The successful candidate will be a confident and capable communicator who is able to write in an engaging manner for a variety of audiences and is comfortable working both independently and as part of a team. Knowledge of the Chilterns and experience in the conservation or tourism sector would be advantageous, but not essential.

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 'virtual' office, helping to create high quality communications which raise the profile of the AONB.

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 email@example.com
