Focus100We regularly feature the work of the Countryside Jobs Service, although we don’t always explore the full range of what its website has to offer.  Today’s blog looks at the CJS library of feature articles previously published in CJS Focus.  These are articles written for CJS by a range of organisations and charities.  There is information and insight here across many different areas of the countryside, conservation, wildlife sectors that has been accumulated over many years.  You will find the library here.

The features thus far in 2017 have been on:

  • New Nature, a new e-magazine
  • fundraising and promotion (in association with the Environmental Funders Network)
  • Plantlife, the charity
