The Wildlife Trust seeks conservation trainees for Working for Nature project

By The Wildlife Trust

The Wildlife Trust has just started recruiting for new trainees for the Working for Nature project. The traineeship is specifically aimed at people who would otherwise struggle to get employment in conservation and groups who are underrepresented in conservation.

The actual traineeship will not start until January, but as we are wanting the John Muir Award to be part of the process we are starting early.

The first stage is for prospective candidates to express their interest by filling out a form on Derbyshire Wildlife Trust’s website, as per the flyer below. If eligible they will be invited to attend an information session which will be done remotely on Zoom. The first one of these will be on 30 September.

Eligibility criteria

Trainees must be non-graduates, be over 18, eligible to work in the UK and have a level 1 in English and Maths.  In addition we are asking that people have their own transport or a driving licence and are comfortable using IT. Unfortunately we have had to include these as requirements because of restrictions around Covid.

The traineeship will be based at Sheffield but the recruitment process will be done through Derbyshire Wildlife Trust.
