Wildlife voluntary internships

Leading conservation charity, the Scottish Wildlife Trust, is calling for applications for the new volunteer internship programmes in the North of Scotland.

Current positions include a volunteer marketing co-ordinator and a volunteer reserves co-ordinator internship.

The volunteer marketing co-ordinator internship role provides a tremendous opportunity to support a large landscape project and local volunteers utilising social media platforms.

The Trust’s local volunteers and Coigach-Assynt living landscape project manager are looking for someone to make the best use of new methods of communication to help make an impact throughout the North of Scotland and beyond.

The internship is home-based and applicants should ideally be living in the North of the country.

The volunteer reserve co-ordinator internship role involves undertaking a varied range of tasks, including devising strategies, championing a unique Scottish species, help with reserve data and event organising.

The role provides an opportunity to support the Trust’s work in the North of Scotland, meet local staff and gain valuable experience.

The Scottish Wildlife Trust Volunteer development officer, Peter Gilbert, said: “These positions are a great opportunity for a volunteer to get involved with our work in the North and to gain a wide range of experience concerning our projects and sites, including our exciting Coigach-Assynt Living Landscape project.”

The positions are 12 weeks starting in June with full induction, training and mentoring. Apply online.
