Connecting wetland centres across the world

WLI internship 2019/2020

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 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 the International Engagement Officer, Connor Walsh. The deadline is the 15th April, with Skype interviews taking place the following week. We would invite the successful candidate to start with us from July (visa process permitting) lasting until the 30th of June 2020.

The WLI network is endorsed by the Ramsar Convention on wetlands and coordinated by WWT.
