Carbon Landscape Trainee

We are offering trainee placements on the Carbon Landscape project for local people who wish to have a career in environmental conservation. Each placement will have the opportunity to have hands on experience learning conservation management and general project management skills whilst earning minimum wage.

The Lancashire Wildlife Trust, along with 12 other organisations have come together to create the Carbon Landscape Partnership Scheme. This five-year Project was developed to help restore and maintain areas of green spaces in Wigan, Warrington and Salford, to improve access to these areas and to raise awareness with communities about their local heritage and wildlife.

We are looking for enthusiastic individuals with an energetic, ‘can do’ attitude, a passion for learning new skills, who are committed and have an understanding of this important landscape for both people and wildlife.

In return, we offer a friendly and flexible working environment, great opportunities for professional development and the chance to make a positive difference for people and communities across the Carbon Landscape area.
