Specialist team roles

We offer a range of exciting opportunities for volunteers to gain experience within our specialist teams. From civil engineering to heritage and ecology, there are a number of ways to develop your skills, enhance your knowledge and contribute to our canals and rivers.

You don’t necessarily need to know all about boating or have lots of practical skills to volunteer alongside our technical teams. While there may be a chance to get out on the bank, we are primarily seeking enthusiastic people to join our specialist teams on a range of office-based tasks throughout the country. Some roles can even be done from home.

For example, if you're a retired engineer who loves the waterways, have an interest that you want to make more of alongside your everyday job or if you are just starting your career, we would love to hear from you. Tasks could include surveys out and about on the towpath, gathering important information through GIS software and contributing to valuable data entry.

Opportunities are changing daily so if we don’t have anything which suits you at the moment, keep checking in for future specialist volunteer roles which could be right for you.
