Volunteer Vacancies

Volunteer roles at Planning Aid for London

At Planning Aid for London, we rely on the help of our volunteers to help us deliver our advice services. Our volunteers do not only help by giving advice to members of the public; they are involved in creating new guides, leaflets and videos. They also help deliver training sessions for communities or create new content for the website.

It is not mandatory for volunteers to be a member of the RTPI or other professional body to volunteer with us.

The volunteer roles are:

  • Caseworker Lead Volunteer: Help resolve planning queries by giving members of the public and community groups advice
  • Workshop Lead Volunteer: Support with community outreach and facilitate our workshops with community groups
  • Support Volunteer: Recent graduates and early career planners can support the delivery of training and events and casework. You can pair up with other volunteers to get more experience in planning

We are not currently recruiting. Please sign up to our newsletter to find out future volunteer vacancies first.
