SIDMOUTH: National Trust looking for new ranger
Wednesday, 21 May 2014
THE National Trust and the Sid Vale Association (SVA) are seeking a volunteer trainee ranger for a year. The chosen trainee will get hands-on experience in practical land management work, community projects and public engagement, and will have the opportunity to gain relevant industry certificates. The SVA was established in 1846 as a charity for conservation and heritage in the Sid Valley which relies heavily on the time and dedication of its volunteers. Neville Staddon of the SVA said: "The association is pleased to assist the National Trust, by providing support from the Keith Owen Fund. "Keith loved the countryside, in particular the unspoilt beauties of the Sid Valley, and it was one of his wishes that the Fund should be used to support and encourage conservation in the countryside and promote voluntary work. "The SVA volunteer groups will benefit from the knowledge gained by the trainee in preserving and maintaining land owned by the SVA in the future." National Trust community ranger Kate Sheard said: "This is a fantastic opportunity for someone already living in East Devon to gain experience and essential skills and training for a future career in countryside management whilst helping to conserve this beautiful landscape. "We would like to thank the SVA for their support and the funding which has enabled us to offer this post." The trainee must be over 18 years of age and live in East Devon. Those interested should apply to Kate Sheard on 01297 680507, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. The closing date for applications is 9am on Wednesday May 21st.
