Student volunteering week

Student volunteering is a big part of life at the Trust. Many of our specialist teams work closely with university students, both on long-term placements and for shorter stretches of time.

"I would encourage any level of student BSc, MSc or PhD etc to volunteer with the Trust. It has, above all else, been a truly enjoyable experience."

Some of our student volunteers are looking for professional experience to gain that all important step up the ladder, others are hoping to develop their leadership skills and some just fancy a breath of fresh air.

We welcome all of their contributions to our ongoing work, making life better by water.

For student volunteering week we caught up with some of our student volunteers, past and present, to find out what it's really like to join our team.

"I though it was a great thing to get involved with, helping to tidy up this little haven for nature where everyone can go and enjoy some peace and quiet."
