SummaryA traineeship for 18 - 25 year olds
Are you aged 18 -25 years? Are you looking to pursue a career in UK wildlife conservation?
If so, we might have the perfect opportunity for you!
Here at Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust, we have a Trainee opportunity to be part of our Evidence and Connected Landscapes team, undertaking ecological monitoring and habitat mapping across our nature reserves and at Robinswood Hill.
You will agree a personal training plan and receive a substantial amount of tailored internal and certified external training as well as a wide range of opportunities to learn about the work of the Wildlife Trusts.
With individual support you will get involved in all aspects of GWT’s work. Initially focusing on reserve monitoring, you’ll gain experience in many aspects of UK wildlife conservation, while absorbing practical knowhow from your experienced mentor.
Throughout the year you will also gain skills with other GWT teams, including Land Management, Engagement & Learning and Communications to give you wider experience and an overview of the career opportunities available in the UK Nature sector.
This opportunity is on a fixed term basis from November 2023 for 1 year, 21 hours a week. Although initially based in Gloucester, this role involves travelling to nature reserves across Gloucestershire, so independent transport is essential in the spring and summer months.
If you are interested in joining our team, please hit the join button where we will send you further information.
We aim to be an equal opportunity employer and are determined to ensure that no applicant or employee receives less favourable treatment.
