The place to ask those tricky questions about how to get a job in the countryside, what to do when you want to move on, which qualifications you should add to your CV, which professional organisation is the right one for you, where you can volunteer in your spare time... You ask it and we'll do our best to answer it!


CJS has been running since 1994 and over the years we've accumulated a lot of knowledge and useful contacts which we're very happy to share with our readers.  If you've got a countryside query and don't know where to turn then ask us, we might not have the answer immediately to hand but chances are we will know who to ask or where to find the solution.


Ask us anything from how to get started, about organisations offering placements, which additional skills and certification is required for specific job roles.  You'll find general information on our Helpful Hints page here.
