Sussex Wildlife Trust

The Sussex Wildlife Trust is the leading organisation covering all aspects of nature conservation in Sussex. Our work includes environmental education, working with landowners, businesses and local communities, and the care of downland, woodland, wetland and heath. We are supported by over 38,000 members which is almost 2% of the population of Sussex.

The Role

Sussex Wildlife Trust is delighted to offer a 12-month traineeship funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. This is the third of three trainee posts available during the Discover Rye Harbour three year project. Discover Rye Harbour aims to connect the local community to the wildlife and landscape at Rye Harbour Nature Reserve, enabling people of all ages and abilities to learn more about our rare species and habitats and to take action to help conserve them. The trainee will gain a vast array of valuable experience and skills in both environmental education and conservation at Rye Harbour Nature Reserve and Discovery Centre.

This unique and exciting opportunity will enable an individual embarking on a career in the sector to gain on-the-job experience and access to relevant training such as Level 3 Forest School and Wild Beach, safeguarding, first aid at work, species identification and habitat management.

The Person

To be considered for the scheme, individuals must be able to commit to a 12-month training programme and be at least 18 years of age. Previous experience is not required but an understanding of environmental education and/or countryside management will be beneficial. Please note that a DBS check will be required at the start of employment.

Most importantly, individuals must have a real passion for working with communities, nature conservation and wildlife, be self-motivated, have a willingness to learn and have aspirations to develop a career within the nature conservation sector.

In order to encourage diversity and inclusivity within the environment sector, we particularly welcome applications from people who have an ethnically or geographically diverse background, who are non-graduates and/or are living in economically deprived areas
