Year 10 Work Experience Placements 

Weeks available:11-15 June and 2-6 July

We are pleased to offer the opportunity to gain valuable experience of working within a wildlife charity through week long placements. We are looking for students who are interested in their local wildlife and environmental issues, and eager to learn more. 

Successful candidates can expect their week to be a mix of practical outdoor work as well as office based tasks, a reflection of what work life is like for many of our staff. Specific tasks and activities will be dependent on the season and any prior commitments in staff time, but could include activities such as:
• Wildlife walks around our nature reserves, learning about our local wildlife and how we manage land and work with partners
• A practical conservation day out to a reserve with one of our volunteer groups
• Planning and helping to deliver a community event or wildlife lesson for other young people
• Updating social media, writing articles or blogs

Practical Conservation Volunteering

Join one of our practical volunteer groups where physical exercise, fresh air and job satisfaction are guaranteed. Help protect the habitats of rare species, such as barn owls and water voles and get hands-on with managing ancient woodland and wildflower meadows.

Employee Engagement

Swap your computer for a spade for a day, work as a team and feel the benefits of being in the natural environment.

Volunteer Placements  

We offer volunteer placements positions from time to time. These aim to provide volunteers with work-based experience that can support career development, providing opportunities to take on more responsibility and learn new skills.

Community Volunteering

Feed Bristol is currently at full capacity for new volunteers. 

Events Volunteers

Support our membership recruiters on stands, providing simple and fun activities from badge making to mask making.

Local Groups

Meet like-minded people by joining or starting your very own local group. Organise events, fundraise or simply get together to share your interest in wildlife.
