Nature Conservation Traineeships. South Devon and NEW location - GLASTONBURY ABBEY.

The Ambios 12-week nature conservation experiences provide you with the foundation skills required for a career in nature conservation along with a comprehensive insight into working in the sector.

Whether you're looking for a learning experience to broaden your horizons, or focused on the career path you want and you need experience to get you there, this training is for you. The aim of these placements is to help you gain the skills needed for a career in the nature conservation sector. Employers have identified the skills gap in students coming out of university. Noticing that they lack necessary practical management, species identification and survey skills as well as vital employability skills such as team work, project planning and negotiation skills. This training aims to tackle this issue by providing an opportunity to experience various practical tasks, field trips to local conservation sites; biodiversity assessments, wildlife surveys, techniques for the management of rural landscapes; public engagement, education and employability skills.

We operate an open recruitment and welcome applications from anyone. Our experiences suggest that graduates looking for crucial experience, career changers who are looking for a way into working in the nature conservation sector or those who are inspired by the natural world and want to broaden their horizons benefit from these placements; whether you are aiming to be the next Director of a wildlife NGO or the Environment Minister; a teacher, support worker, countryside ranger or researcher; tree surgeon, biologist, consultant or historic site manager this experience will set you on your way.

These are live in placements either in a beautiful farm location in South Devon or the historical grounds of Glastonbury Abbey. Training, food & accommodation all included in the cost.
