Trees for Streets is the new National Street Tree Sponsorship Scheme launching to the public at the start of May 2021. It is a not-for-profit charitable ‘enterprise’, providing local councils an innovative way to help fund street tree planting by letting residents and businesses sponsor new street trees.

The scheme is a collaboration between the progressive charity, Trees for Cities, and the local innovator, Start with Local. It is supported by the Mayor of London and funded by City Bridge Trust and the government's Green Recovery Challenge Fund.

We’re recruiting a number of exciting and varied roles to help build up our high-performance team to support our launch. This is a great opportunity for people wanting to work in the environmental charity space on a tech-for-good project.

We’re embracing a home-based flexible approach to working to get the very best out of our team and offer a better work/life balance. All roles are for an immediate start.
