Skills for Wildlife Trainees will be based on Yorkshire Wildlife Trust’s exciting new community farm development at Stirley.

The trainees will have one day a week based at another conservation organisation on a placement they organise for themselves. The other day will be spent at Sheffield Wildlife Trust collecting evidence for their Diploma in Environmental Conservation.

The Skills for Wildlife trainee roles are varied and give people a good range of experience and knowledge of working in the field as well as First Aid training and Brushcutter and Strimmer training. No previous experience is required to be a trainee. However candidates will have to work outside in all weathers, work well as part of a small team and have a positive ‘can do’ attitude. The Wildlife Trusts will supply any necessary safety clothing or footwear.
