WWT Slimbridge centre

The Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust hosts the Wetland Link International (WLI) initiative, a support network for those working in wetland centres that deliver CEPA activities (Communication, Education, Participation and Awareness) at wetland sites. The network has over 300 members, and forms part of Ramsar’s CEPA programme, as well as working with many leading wetland conservation organisations.

We are looking for a recent graduate in conservation science or early career professional, to spend up to a year with us at our renowned wetland centre at Slimbridge, UK. The successful candidate will work alongside the WLI Global manager, supporting development of the network, developing relationships with other wetland conservation organisations, researching and developing tools for members to use, and encouraging sharing and communication across our membership.

The WLI intern will receive accommodation at WWT’s staff/volunteer accommodation, two return flights between their home and Slimbridge, UK, and a monthly allowance to cover food and subsistence. It is a great chance to spend time at a world-class wetland conservation organisation, develop skills in international conservation and communication, and bring your own knowledge and expertise to support wetland conservation at a global level.

You can download a role description and an application form, or for more information, please contact Chris Rostron at chris.rostron@wwt.org.uk.  The deadline is the 28th April, with Skype interviews taking place on the 10th of May.  We would invite the successful candidate to start with us from late May / early June (visa process permitting) lasting until the 31st of March 2018.
