Six months in the first instance, two days per week. It’s possible this post could be on-going if funding were secured to make it so.

• Knowledge of grant sources
• A demonstrable knowledge (and preferably experience) of WWOOF in order to look for appropriate funding
• Self-motivated and able to work on own initiative, providing fortnightly reports on progress
• 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

Working arrangements

You will be a contractor and therefore required to have your own equipment


7.5 hours per day, 2 days per week. Time of day and distribution throughout week to suit the post

Terms and conditions

You will be paid £12 per hour, working from home. You will be contracted on a self-employment/consultancy basis and will need to invoice WWOOF UK for your work. You may be required to do some occasional travel for which all expenses will be paid; time unpaid.

To apply

Please email with a covering letter and your CV by 13th September. Confirmation of receipt of application and additional questions will be addressed by email. No phone calls please.
