At Wiltshire Wildlife Trust we believe that giving people an opportunity to experience our work, whether that's learning how to coppice, helping to manage a social media site, removing invasive plants from a river or helping with administration. We can give you a valuable insight into the everyday skills, routines and work needed to restore, recreate and reconnect landscapes across the county. 

Work Placements (WP)

We encourage applications from individuals who are undertaking or have completed degree studies or equivalent in relevant disciplines who are interested in an unpaid Work Placement within the Trust. These placements can be undertaken throughout the year depending on the ongoing projects that are taking place but most occur within the spring-summer-autumn period.  There is a minimum requirement of 150 hours and the applicant will have to provide their own transport and accommodation. As part of the application process, an interview will be arranged.

To apply for our WP programme complete our online form allowing for a minimum of three full months notice to complete the application process.

We regret that, due to demand, we are no longer able to accept requests for short-term work placements (less than 4 weeks or 150 hours) during 2020. We apologise for the inconvenience.
