As lockdown lifts and the promise of a more normal life hovers on the horizon our graduating students should be celebrating the end of three (or more) year's hard work to gain their diplomas and degrees. After enduring the most unusual and stressful of final years they leave the world of academia behind and head off to start their careers they are looking at a more uncertain future than any of us can imagine. It's a hard enough time setting out looking for your first 'real' job in a profession that you hope is going to sustain you, body and soul, for the rest of your working life and we all know how difficult it is in the countryside and conservation sectors at any time. To help our next generation of rangers, ecologists, wildlife warriors, landscape managers and environmental educators CJS once gain wants to give each of this year's graduating class a graduation present of a full year's subscription to CJS Weekly.

If you know any students graduating this year please send them the details of our graduate gift, there are more details and the form to sign up here

Rest assured this is a genuine gift, no hidden catches or sudden requests for money, just CJS trying our best to help the sector.

LOC: Knighton area (Powys / Shropshire / Herefordshire border)
PAY: Expenses
FOR: Knighton Community Woodlands Group

Knighton Community Woodlands Group (KCWG) is local people coming together to learn and share woodland skills, and to use those skills for the benefit of wildlife and our members. We need to become more financially self-sufficient through sales and so need to establish what the potential local market is for woodland products such as charcoal, bean poles, pea sticks and hedging stakes. We are seeking a volunteer for a few hours each week who will contact local retailers to find out if they would be willing to stock these items and the level of stock that they would require. This opportunity would allow you to work from home and set your own hours. You would need to travel to local vendors as required. You will be supported by a sociable, experienced and knowledgeable group who have been running for the past 10 years.
