2. Community Cleanup Contractor (2)

We are looking to recruit at least two freelance contractors to support the delivery of our Wandle Cleanups on the second Sunday of every month. This is a great opportunity for anyone keen to start a career in community engagement and environmental improvement.


Over 20 years ago, the Trust started running community cleanups along the river every second Sunday of the month to tackle this fly-tipping.

Our Wandle Cleanups are hugely popular, as they provide the community with a safe and enjoyable way to engage with their local river while making a visible and positive difference to the environment. Last year alone, the Trust’s cleanup events attracted 540 volunteers who collectively spent over 1600 hours removing 50 tonnes of rubbish from the Wandle to improve the river for both wildlife and the local community.

Deadline to apply is Thursday 6th February 12 noon. An Assessment Day is booked for the 23rd February and the successful candidates will be trained at the event on Sunday 8th March.
