About Us

Dartmoor National Park Authority is the body that oversees the vibrant, living, working landscape and community that is Dartmoor.

The Role

Hosted by Dartmoor National Park Authority (DNPA) the Conservation and Access Trainee posts provide opportunities to develop practical skills and knowledge in conservation and access management. This is a partnership role working across land managed by Dartmoor National Park Authority, Woodland Trust, National Trust and Southwest Lakes Trust. The posts are funded by the Government's Green Recovery Challenge Fund.

Trainees will gain experience through practical conservation and access management work and support outreach and engagement activity. This varied role includes practical habitat management across a wide range of sites, maintenance of public rights of way and archaeological and conservation projects. They will receive mentoring and support from staff working across the partnership, developing a wide range of experience, skills with associated training.

Based within the Conservation Works Team at Dartmoor National Park Authority, trainees will work across the National Park and therefore a full UK driving licence is essential for this role.

The Conservation & Access Trainees will work 37 hours per week over 5 days. Occasional weekend and public holiday working will be required.
