Volunteer for TVERC

We occasionally have opportunities for volunteers to help us to collect and manage environmental data, either in the field or in the office. Volunteering can be greatly satisfying and enjoyable. Unravelling a particularly knotty problem with a dataset, seeing a species you haven’t seen for some time or meeting up with like-minded people are great ways to feel that your time has been well spent. If you are looking for new experience, working alongside TVERC staff and learning skills may help you to meet personal goals and discover hidden talents. From planning to conservation, the data we provide with your help influences decision-making.

Office volunteering usually involves validating data that we have received and preparing it for import into our Recorder 6 database. Please note for these 'office' roles you will be based at home with regular interaction with TVERC staff.

Experienced naturalists with excellent identification skills and an ability to work alone in the field may be able to help us with survey work.

Unfortunately we do not have any volunteers vacancies at the moment. Follow us on social media to be the first to know when we are looking for volunteer. If you are interested please email us at tverc@oxfordshire.gov.uk.
