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. Positions include practical reserve management, wetland conservation and research and science based roles.
