Find out about the wide range of careers available within the river conservation sector. This FREE afternoon event will feature a series of talks from professionals working in a variety of roles within river conservation, including land management, volunteer coordination, environmental education, fisheries management, and freshwater research. Our speakers will share an insight into what their roles involve, as well as the routes they took to get to where they are today.
This afternoon event is predominantly aimed at those aged 18+, whether you are currently in further education, are a job-seeking graduate, or are interested in a career change. Employability and careers staff from higher education institutions are welcome to attend.
The event will also include two short workshops. In the first, we will be delving into the world of Riverfly and in the second we will be sharing top tips to help you stand out when searching, applying, and interviewing for jobs in conservation. There will be plenty of time for questions and discussions, so please bring your career questions along or send them through to us in advance.
This event is being organised and delivered by Severn Rivers Trust as part of the Unlocking the Severn Project, a conservation and river-engagement project to unlock the UK’s longest river for people and wildlife. This project is made possible thanks to funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and the EU Life Programme.
