Join the team: New volunteering opportunities

21 December 2017

We’re recruiting for a number of new volunteers – a great way to get involved with growing more trees for Greater Manchester and beat the January blues.

Assistant Project Officer - Graduate Placement - City of Trees is pleased to offer an opportunity for motivated individual to benefit from up to 3 months’ work experience in the area of community engagement with the community forestry sector. The placement will be carrying out a variety of office, site and event based work and activities.

Assistant Project Officer - i-Tree canopy assessment - City of Trees is pleased to offer an opportunity for a motivated individual to benefit from experience in helping us develop a Tree and Woodland Strategy for Greater Manchester. We need a volunteer to undertake a digital assessment of Greater Manchester’s tree canopy, using the “i-Tree Canopy” platform.

Survey stars: Can you spare 30 minutes before the end of January? - We are looking for home-based volunteers to help with an important project called iTree Eco. An i-Tree Eco survey for Greater Manchester would provide a unique and ground-breaking UK-wide blueprint on how to calculate the value of our trees. We need home-based people to take part in some online survey work - all you need is a laptop or desktop computer! Full instructions and support provided.

Whether you give 1 day, 1 hour or 1 week, by becoming a Citizen Forester, you're spreading the word about the City of Trees movement and helping us to achieve our vision of planting a tree for every man, woman and child across Greater Manchester.
