The CAG project in Devon was set up in 2016, with two on-the-ground staff working with local groups in and around Tiverton.
You should have a passion for working with community groups and enjoy the challenge of solving problems. Resource Futures is a B Corp certified company and we believe business can be a positive force for social and environmental improvement, if you share these values then we would love to hear from you.
