Spurn National Nature Reserve Voluntary Trainee

Are you looking for a career in conservation? Do you need to gain experience and make your CV stand out to potential employers? Then read on to find out about the voluntary traineeship at Spurn National Nature Reserve (NNR), which is currently open for applications. We’re on the look-out for x 2 voluntary trainees to join us at our Spurn NNR, you will have the opportunity to live on site (if you want) and completely immerse yourself in the experience of working on this truly unique nature reserve!

Previous Spurn Reserve Voluntary Trainees have gained employment within the sector and gone to work as ecology assistant’s consultants or with Yorkshire Wildlife Trust. Spurn is an incredible and isolated place, which you become completely immersed in while gaining vital experience, to help you stand out when applying for jobs in the conservation sector.

You will spend your days delivering events, engaging with visitors or carrying our practical habitat management to improve the reserve for wildlife and people. On a quiet summer evening you can be scanning flocks of waders for that rare find, the east coast is well known for attracting migrating rarities. Or if that doesn’t suit you, stroll along the beach looking for what treasures the tide has brought in. While on still clear winter evenings you can enjoy the stars, as the haunting call of seals reach you across the water.

Each traineeship comes with a competitive training budget and travel expenses. Accommodation on-site can also be provided.
