RSPB Seek Intern for Burton Mere Wetlands

Published: 14th June 2012 13:50

Why not step up for nature and get a foot on the job ladder - have you got what it takes to become RSPB's Dee Estuary's first ever intern?

Burton MereThe new RSPB visitor centre at Burton Mere Wetlands has welcomed thousands of visitors through its doors since it opened in September and now the visitor demand is so high that they need your help.

A special six month internship has been created during which volunteers will be given all the training, coaching and advice needed to kick start a career in conservation, whilst working at one of the RSPB's biggest nature reserves.

Although experience of working in a busy tourist attraction is desirable, the ideal candidate will need to demonstrate their enthusiasm for wildlife and be capable of meeting the RSPB's high standards for visitors.

Former student Katy van Woerdekom stepped up for nature by helping out as an RSPB volunteer for six months starting last September and describes how her experiences helped her get her dream conservation job. Katy, who started volunteering after leaving university, explains: "I couldn't get a job right away so I started volunteering. I have enjoyed every minute of it and it has given me the skills, experience and confidence I needed to move forward with my career."

Paul Brady, RSPB Visitor Development Officer said: "Volunteers have played a huge part in the success of RSPB Burton Mere Wetlands and we literally couldn't operate without them. These internships are a great opportunity for the right person to get their foot on the ladder to a great career in conservation, and follow in the footsteps of Katy and many others."

Burton Mere Wetlands are inviting applicants to apply for the internships via the website www.rspb.org.uk/volunteering or by phoning 0151 353 8478.

The closing date for this internship vacancy is Friday 6 July. The RSPB are also inviting applicants for other general volunteering vacancies.

RSPB Burton Mere Wetlands is off the A540 (Chester High Road) and just 10 minutes from the M56. For more information about RSPB Burton Mere Wetlands nature reserve visit: www.rspb.org.uk/burtonmerewetlands.

The reception building and nature reserve is open daily from 9.30am until 5pm. For more details see the website or phone 0151 353 8478.
