Volunteering

There are a number of ways you can get involved in the work of the BTO:

We occasionally have opportunities for volunteers to gain experience and use their skills, knowledge and experience to support our work in one of our offices.

If you would like to volunteer for the BTO, please send an email to us at recruitment [at] bto.org with some information about you, including:

  • What knowledge, skills and experience you have.
  • What areas you are interested in volunteering in.

We are keen to make volunteering for the BTO accessible, especially for people under-represented in the environment movement; and try to offer a variety of opportunities, days, hours, some remote working and travel expenses.

Unfortunately we are unable to offer placements to everyone; if we are not able to offer you something we would encourage you to speak with your Regional Rep about how you can get involved.

PhD and Masters

Staff from the BTO co-supervise PhD and Masters projects at a number of universities. BTO is a full member of the ARIES DTP and participates in several others. PhD opportunities will be advertised here, usually in the autumn.

If you have an idea for a project as part of your Masters that you would be interested in working with BTO staff on, then please refer to our staff bios and staff contacts by topic to identify the member of staff within your area of interest.

Equality and diversity

We are an equal opportunities employer and are especially keen to encourage applications from people currently under-represented in the environment movement.

We recognise that candidates from minority ethnic groups are under-represented in our organisation, and that there are often additional barriers present for people from these groups when applying for roles in the charity sector and beyond. We are committed to taking positive action to expand the diversity of our staff team, and if you meet the essential criteria for a role and are from a minority ethnic background, you'll be guaranteed a first-stage interview.

If you have a disability or long-term illness that otherwise prevents you from meeting any of the essential criteria, please contact us to discuss whether a reasonable adjustment could be made.

As users of the disability confident scheme, we guarantee to interview all disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria for the vacancy.
