Do you love wildlife and working outdoors? Are you practically minded and want to learn new skills? Have you thought about a career in nature conservation or environmental education?
As part of the Our Bright Future “One Planet Pioneers” project, we have a unique opportunity for two paid Traineeships (6 months) for young people aged 16-25 funded through the National Lottery Community Fund.
These Traineeships offer a unique opportunity for young people aged between 16-25 to undertake a vocational traineeship based with the Tees Valley Wildlife Trust team, learning valuable practical skills in urban nature conservation, community engagement and communications. You’ll also have the chance to shape and influence how the Trust works with young people in the future.
As an Environmental Education / Conservation Trainee you would spend three days a week assisting members of staff delivering activities on a range of environmental projects. You will also receive training in environmental education or conservation management on nature reserves and green spaces. Project staff will work with you to create a personal training and development plan customised to your needs and interests.
As the role involves working with children you will be required to undergo a Disclosure Barring Check.
