Volunteering opportunities advertised
Would you like to learn new skills and meet new people while supporting Clan Donald Lands Trust? We regularly have opportunities for volunteers to get involved in our work. We are currently recruiting Garden Volunteers.
The Garden Volunteer role will support the maintenance and development of the gardens, including work in the nurseries and flower border. No experience is necessary but an interest in plants and gardening would of course be beneficial. We are looking for people who can commit to a regular volunteering slot on a weekday. For more information please download the Task Description from this page. To register your interest please download and complete the Registration of Interest form on this page, and email to the Estate Manager: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also have other volunteering opportunities from time to time. Examples of volunteer roles include helping with exhibition research, supporting education and learning activities, supporting the events programme, assisting with evaluation, and undertaking archive cataloguing. We will post up new opportunities on this page, on social media and in our e-newsletter.
We also welcome approaches from undergraduate and postgraduate students in a relevant discipline seeking research placements. Please note that we are unable to offer volunteering opportunities to individuals who are under 18.

ProjectScotland is looking for volunteer mentors to help support our new project in Inverness. We work with hundreds of young people aged 16-30 every year. Each young person spends 3 months volunteering with a local charity, giving their time in return for skills development and experience. Each volunteer is offered a mentor to help them get the most from their volunteering and help them work out what they want to do in the future. The support you can offer is invaluable, from providing CV advice, interview preparation, to goal setting and confidence building. We can’t do it without you! HOW MUCH TIME WILL IT TAKE? You’ll give an hour a week to your mentee, for between twelve weeks and a year depending on what is most beneficial for them. How you spend that hour will depend on the support your volunteer wants and the time you spend together will evolve as your mentoring relationship develops. WHAT DIFFERENCE WILL I MAKE? You can help your volunteer get on in life by sharing your experiences, skills and networks with them. Using your great communication and listening skills you can give your volunteer a fresh perspective on their current situation and help them make the most of their placement. During your time with your mentee you will work together to make effective plans for the future, tackle current challenges and make difficult decisions. By giving a small amount of your time you really can change someone’s life. AM I QUALIFIED? If you get on with people, are an optimist, have an open mind and are committed to helping young people, you are just who we are looking for. Plus, we’ll give you training so you feel prepared and confident to mentor. When you are matched with your mentee there is ongoing support from ProjectScotland. If you’re thinking about mentoring with us just listen to what our volunteer mentor Alan has to say: “If you’re considering mentoring there’s no need to have reservations, there’s lots of help and support available. Just have the confidence that your experience, failures and successes are all you need”. Rissa is one of ProjectScotland's existing mentors and she shares why she loves being a mentor: "What I love about mentoring: (1) the element of surprise: each relationship is the start of an adventure whose path you may not be able to predict - but trusting in the process is part of the pleasure. (2) the gift of 'the other': it's a chance to open yourself up to perspectives, experiences and dreams that may be quite different from your own. (3) the promise of growth: if you're both willing to listen and to learn, you'll grow in ways you never imagined." What are you waiting for!
