GWSY Careers

Working with Groundwork offers our staff the opportunity to gain a unique breadth of experience - whether they are just beginning their career or seeking a new role to develop it further.

Many of our senior managers began their careers as volunteers or entry-level project staff. By providing a range of continuous professional development opportunities at the local, regional and national level we are able to recruit and retain the very best.

"Groundwork offers huge employee benefits – not just in the traditional sense, but also through knowing that your work, whatever part you play, is helping to make a real difference."

We employ quite a unique range of staff - landscape architects, project managers, youth workers, environmental advisers and community workers for example. Plus finance managers, HR experts, marketeers and policy thinkers. It makes us a stimulating place to work - and means you will definitely be exposed to new sets of skills and experiences.

We can help you take control of your career.
