Do you care about the environment? Would you like a career in nature conservation?

We are delighted to be hosting a ‘Meadow Makers’ trainee through a new and exciting project taking place thanks to funding from the government’s Green Recovery Challenge Fund.

Led by Plantlife, Meadow Makers aims to restore species-rich grasslands across England in partnership with Arnside & Silverdale AONB, Cumbria Wildlife Trust, Duchy of Cornwall, Herefordshire Meadows, Moor Meadows, the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust and ourselves.

The project is seeking enthusiastic, self-motivated individuals with a strong interest in conservation to become Trainee Meadow Makers and take part in a fully funded trainee programme. We are particularly interested in hearing from young people keen to develop a career in conservation. 

Six full-time, fully paid, career entry positions are available. Each position is for six months, from April to September. 

The High Weald AONB Partnership's trainee position is an opportunity to work alongside a small team of landscape experts to support the delivery of all aspects of the Meadow Makers project. We will offer you a wide range of opportunities combining work-place learning and experience, practical action (including conservation and people engagement), peer to peer learning and completion of a training framework. There will be an opportunity to focus training to reflect your interests, supported by a personal training budget.

This project is funded by the government’s Green Recovery Challenge Fund. The fund is being delivered by The National Lottery Heritage Fund in partnership with Natural England and the Environment Agency.
