Our Volunteers

Are you interested in volunteering your time?

We have various exciting opportuntinities for an assitant to our driver going out on wood collections or helping to keep our yard tidy and de nailing wood amongst many other activities. If you are interested please call us on 0116 251 1483

People volunteer for many different reasons. You may be unemployed, in between jobs or have an interest in recycling or wood whatever your reason we welcome members of the community into Just Wood Leicestershire CIC.

We have a volunteer recruitment process to ensure that all potential volunteers are treated fairly and to manage the number of volunteers on site at any one time.



Volunteers we have supported

At Just Wood we are pleased to support the community by providing a limited number of volunteering opportunties for people. Since we opened in 2013 we have supported 40 Volunteers of which 29 of them were looking for work.

14 unemployed volunteers who have joined us have gone on to undertake further training or found employment.

We have since employed one of our volunteers as a part time driver and then to full time employment, and took on another volunteer as a Waste Operative.

Member of the community can apply to volunteer with us either by finding our website or through Voluntary Action Leicestershire. Feel free to pop in for a chat and we can talk about dates and times to suit you.


We have supported 3 ex offenders,  working closely with Leicestershire Cares, by providing work placements for a short period of time to help them back into employment. 2 of our Volunteers through this scheme have found work in the construction industry as a result of volunteering with our company.
