FIVE TRAINEE OPPORTUNITIES                        

Role Title: Wilder Reserves Volunteer Trainee Warden x5

Fixed Term of 11 months

Closing Date: 31st May 2023

Interview Date: w/c June TBC

Salary: This is an unpaid voluntary position. Reasonable travel and other authorised expenses may be claimed.

Based at:  Various locations throughout Kent, Canterbury, Maidstone, Ashford and Dover

Globally and nationally wildlife is in steep decline. We appear to be reaching critical tipping points around the loss of biodiversity as well as around climate change, both being interlinked. Human society cannot prosper without wildlife and healthy ecosystems. 

Kent’s wildlife needs to be restored to much higher levels. We can no longer allow common things to become rare. We can only do this by restoring large-scale habitat from degraded land. Doing this will contribute to solving global problems.?But?we won’t be able to do this unless we publicly aspire to a higher level of impact and show that we can deliver this.??

The role: We are looking for a Wilder Reserves Volunteer Trainee Warden to work alongside experienced Area Warden to assist with the day-to-day management of a range of important conservation sites, whilst gaining practical conservation experience and training. The role would be ideal for someone seeking a career in conservation or nature reserve management.

Valuable experience will be gained in practical habitat management, volunteer supervision and using livestock to deliver conservation grazing.

You:  You will demonstrate an aptitude and enthusiasm for practical wildlife conservation work.  A relevant environmental qualification is desirable, but NOT essential.  This role comes with an extensive package of training opportunities and represents an ideal apprenticeship for those seeking a career in nature conservation.
