• Willingness to discuss a range of potential projects with different project ‘champions’ and the ability to glean relevant information from them
• Your own office equipment and the ability to work remotely from your team


You will be working a lot on your own initiative but liaising with, and directly accountable, to the WWOOF UK Co-ordinator
