Long-term Volunteers

How would you like to spend your spring/summer on the wonderful island of Lundy?

This year we are inviting four volunteers to come to Lundy and help the island Warden and Education officer to manage the Island and monitor its wildlife. There are two positions running from 3rd April 2018 until 30th June 2018 and two from 30th June until 29th September 2018.

The work will be varied, mostly involving conservation monitoring (seabirds, grey seals, biosecurity monitoring, etc) and management of the islands SSSI, but involvement in more general island duties and visitor engagement will also be required.

No qualifications or specific experience are required as training will be given upon your arrival to the Island, however candidates who are working towards a career in conservation are preferred.

Additionally candidates who have previous volunteering experience in a similar role, relevant qualifications and/or who are experienced and enthusiastic birders/wildlife recorders will be well placed. We are looking for people with a passion for UK wildlife and who have a desire to learn and contribute to a wide range of tasks. Candidates must also be of a hardy nature as working days can be long and in a range of weather conditions.

This is the perfect role for any applicant wanting to experience island living and working on a high profile conservation site, as well as developing on skills and knowledge in various monitoring techniques, practical management, visitor engagement and conservation awareness.

Closing date for all applicants is on 16th February 2018. 

All interviews will be held for this position in the week commencing 3rd March 2018.
