Internship applications open

16th August 2019 - General Catchment

Conservation enthusiasts are invited to apply for our latest voluntary internship.

We’re looking for an intern to help with conservation projects on rivers and lakes full or part time for 6-12 months. The role is a voluntary position, but expenses and training costs are paid. The successful candidate will be given experience across the work of the Trust including wildlife surveying, events, education sessions and farm visits.

Jodie Mills, Operations Director, said: “Our internships are a fantastic way to gain experience in the conservation sector in your local environment. We’re a small charity and our volunteers and interns make an enormous difference to the amount of work we can deliver on the ground.”

This is the second year the voluntary internship has been offered. Last year’s intern, Jo McCurrie, has since been employed by the Trust as an Invasive Non-Native Species Assistant Project Officer.

Jo said: “I was delighted to stay on with the team. I loved the variety of work in the internship and it’s great to be able to continue that work as a member of staff.”

Applications for the internship close on Monday 2 September. Read the role description or contact philippa@westcumbriariverstrust.org for more information.
