Wild Paths Traineeships

Salary: Unsalaried position, but a bursary of £1000 per month will be paid to the trainee

Closing date: Thursday 7th June 2018

Location: Meeth Quarry

The Wild Paths Training Programme is designed to enable participants to gain a broad range of hands-on experience that will give them the skills and confidence to make a valuable contribution to the conservation of the natural heritage, and to communicate with, inspire and enthuse others about our natural heritage. It is ideal for someone who is looking for a career working outdoors with wildlife and people, but candidates do not need to have any prior formal training in this sector.

There are 10 Practical and Engagement placements on offer across the South West, in Avon, Devon, Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire. Devon Wildlife Trust will be offering two trainee placements at Meeth Quarry, near Hatherleigh.

The trainee will be involved with a number of reserves across north Devon giving experience in a range of habitats from a former clay quarry dominated by two huge lakes, grassland and woodland featuring bike trails, easy access trails and paths, through coastal heath, woodland glades, Culm grasslands, upland meadows and moors.

All trainees will receive training in key skills such as time management, giving presentations, personal effectiveness, interview and application techniques.

Candidates are invited to apply via a single process to one, or as many placements as they wish.
