Volunteer on the Public Rights Of Way



An opportunity for volunteers to help improve Middlesbrough’s Public Rights of Way network has opened up.

Two voluntary positions have been made available for a ranger and a researcher to assist in developing the network.

Both roles would involve giving four to five hours a day, on one or two days a week and would report to Middlesbrough Council’s Public Rights of Way officer.

The Rights of Way researcher post involves working to build up an archive library of historical evidence on the network and to digitise the current information where necessary.

The Rights of Way ranger post involves surveying the network and carrying out small maintenance tasks where necessary.

Sharon Barker, Middlesbrough Council’s Voluntary Sector Liaison Officer, said: “These roles represent interesting opportunities in different environments for two volunteers.

“The researcher post will allow someone to indulge a love of history or research and problem solving while the ranger post is aimed at a person with a passion for the great outdoors.

“We look forward to working with those who are willing to give their time to this interesting project.”

No specific skills are essential for either position as full training will be given in both roles.
