Closing date: Monday, 28th January 2019  

We are looking for two voluntary Trainees who are eager to develop a new career in conservation and would like to learn alongside our professional team. Whether you are at the start of your career or looking for a new direction, becoming a Trainee with BBOWT will equip you with relevant experience and qualifications to take that next step.

As a Trainee you will increase your experience, practical skills and knowledge, with the aim of helping you to progress towards a paid role in conservation. Employer-valued practical experience of conservation techniques will range from scrub clearance and vegetation management to maintenance of site infrastructure and helping to manage our livestock. You will take part in a varied training programme, tailored to your role (including first aid certification) and have a dedicated mentor who will monitor your progress and help with personal development throughout your placement. Limited travel expenses are available.

Applicants should have a keen interest in UK wildlife conservation, a good level of physical fitness, and be willing to supervise and lead volunteers. Relevant volunteering or work experience is desirable. Please see our website for further information about the two roles and an application form.

To apply please complete the application form and return it to staceyhewitt@bbowt.org.uk. You should indicate on your application form whether you wish to apply for one specific post or both.

CVs will not be accepted. Please note that only successful applicants will be notified.
