Field Studies Council: Bringing Environmental Understanding to All


FSC believes the more we know about and take inspiration from the world around us the more we can appreciate its needs and protect its diversity and beauty for future generations. 

FSC is the only environmental education charity dedicated solely to providing informative and enjoyable opportunities for people to experience the environment at first hand – to discover, explore, and be inspired by the natural world.

Over the last 70 years FSC has touched the hearts and minds of people of all ages through courses at our network of learning locations, work overseas and the production of resources. Each year over 130,000 people experience FSC through a visit to one of our learning locations either as a child on a family holiday course, a young person on a school fieldtrip, an adult on a leisure learning course or a teacher on a professional development course.

Despite all that we have achieved so far, we hope to provide even more opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to discover, explore and understand the natural world. However, as an Investors in People charity, we realise we can’t achieve this without staff that have a real passion for the work of the charity and a pride in their role within it. Every role in the charity is vital to delivering its mission and vision – if this inspires you and you meet the requirements of the post we would love to hear from you.  

Please note that we DO NOT accept CV's as a method of application.  However, they may be submitted as a supporting document to a fully completed application form.
