Every year we are pleased to offer a rare opportunity to gain excellent practical experience in our fabulous wetland reserves by offering a number of year-long placements.

These 12 month volunteer opportunities are ideal for students currently on an undergraduate degree course who are looking for a placement as part of their sandwich year. However they are also open to graduates or non-students who are looking to gain practical experience in Reserve Management or wetland conservation.

Recruitment for the placements running from August 2017 until August 2018 has now closed. Recruitment for placements in 2018/19 will open in November so please check out the details on this page then. In the meantime we have a wide-range of shorter term volunteer opportunities available at our centres.
