Thanks to support from the Garfield Weston Foundation, we are kicking off a new skills and training programme called the Severn Skills Gap.
As part of this programme, we are excited to be offering an incredible career-building opportunity for three River Interns over the next year. The positions are:
We want to help make careers in conservation more appealing and accessible to non-graduates and people who might not have considered roles in this area before. Our River Intern programme is about providing paid employment in friendly and well supported placements, with money and time allocated for training, equipment and staff expenses like travel.
We believe that everyone should have equal access to enjoying and connecting with rivers and nature. Addressing and promoting equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) within our work is fundamental to achieving our organisational ambitions. It is widely known that the conservation sector is one of the least diverse professions in the UK. This needs to change.
That’s why we’re proud to be launching these fully funded, accessible, sustainable River Internships as a crucial step to help us on this journey.
Join our team!
