A paid, full time placement for 2½ years with the team here at West Exmoor.
Whether you’re leaving school or looking for a change of direction, our award-winning NT Academy scheme will set you on the path to a career as a Ranger. You’ll learn on-the-job skills at West Exmoor based in the Heddon Valley near Parracombe. You’ll work with experts too; experts who’ll happily and enthusiastically pass on their know-how and expertise. Meanwhile, you’ll spend time at college (roughly ten weeks, in blocks, not all at once) gaining a recognised BTEC qualification. And because the scheme’s a healthy mix of college theory, hands-on work and technical training, you’ll find your knowledge, skills and expertise growing in no time at all.
Love of the great outdoors is a must.
We’d like you to have a keen interest in coast/countryside conservation and management and be inspired by the concept of making the countryside relevant to others. Just as importantly, you’re not afraid of hard work and keen to keep learning. You’ll need to be 16 or above. If you’re just leaving school, we’d like you to have (or expect to gain) four GCSEs at Grade C or above (or equivalent qualifications). Ideally, these will be in English Language, Maths and two other subjects. But that’s not the only way into the scheme. Maybe you feel the time’s right for a change and want to turn your passion into your profession.
After more than 20 years working here at Watersmeet and West Exmoor I can thoroughly recommend it as a career.
