An Immediate start is available for the right candidate!

We are a charity entrusted with protecting and improving 2000 miles of waterways that flows through the most vibrant cities and countryside across England & Wales. The local canal and rivers provide a haven for people and nature, and the Canal & River Trust is here so you have a place to escape. This is a place where you can step off the pavement, onto the towpath and breathe.

Many people don’t realise that our waterways are only here thanks to the efforts of thousands of volunteers and the generous donations we receive from our Friends. To be able to continue to protect our waterways for future generations to come, we need people who share our passion for them. As a result we are looking for people to come on board as a multi-site fundraiser. Have a look at the role below and hopefully we’ll hear from you soon…

You will work as part of a team to achieve the desired funding in order for the Canal & River Trust to continue further development along the waterways.

On occasions you will have the opportunity to assist with events and festivals.
