Are you a recent graduate looking for good work experience?

Keen to work outdoors with farmers and interested in rural skills such as hedge laying and dry stone walling?

Do you have a commitment to conservation and communities and a passion for the environment?

If you can say 'yes' to all of the above then we'd like to hear from you.

 

The Pendle Hill Landscape Partnership is an exciting and ambitious Heritage Lottery Funded scheme which has just started delivering a four year 2.5m programme of activity to restore and celebrate the landscape and heritage of this iconic Lancashire landmark.

 

We will recruit a Graduate Trainee each year to deliver activity, to gain experience, and to learn from our team and partners.

 

This year the focus for the Trainee is our Traditional Boundaries project which seeks to restore dry stone walls and hedgerows in the landscape, for flood management, biodiversity and landscape benefits.

Working with the Dry Stone Walling Association, skilled trainers, farmers and contractors, your role will be to carry out field surveys, map and model outcomes using GIS, support farmers making grant applications, researching landscape history, supporting community groups, assisting with training events and promotional work.

 

Training will mostly be on-the-job with some formal courses and technical support available. You will need a recent degree or level 5 qualification in a relevant subject, plus be able to drive and have access to your own vehicle.
