 The National Trust and Polzeath Marine Conservation Group have a vacancy for a full time volunteer Marine & Coastal Ranger – see below for further details.

 Please pass on this information to anyone you think maybe interested in the role.

 Volunteer Marine & Coastal Ranger

 This is an exciting and unique opportunity to work with both the National Trust and the Polzeath Marine Conservation Group. The vacancy is for a Volunteer Marine & Coastal Ranger to join the Ranger team on the spectacular North Cornwall coast between Tintagel and Holywell and assist the Polzeath Marine Conservation Group in protecting the Voluntary Marine Conservation Area. You will gain knowledge, skills and experience in practical habitat, access and estate management, leading public and volunteer events, carrying out surveys, developing links with local communities and managing and recruiting other volunteers. You will use a wide variety of tools, machinery and equipment.

You need to be able to commit to at least six months from March, working five days a week. Some weekend and evening work required in this role. Training courses will be provided subject to funding and availability (e.g. NPTC and Lantra certificated courses, also general TCV, National Trust and Cornwall Wildlife Trust courses in countryside and marine skills, habitat management, species ID, education and interpretation skills). Also a NPTC diploma in work based Environmental Conservation is available. 

This fantastic opportunity will suit those of a very practical, friendly nature, who are physically fit and enjoy working outdoors. You will meet people from all walks of life whilst improving the environment around you. A qualification in countryside management, marine conservation or similar would be useful.  
 
Accommodation in a house, shared with other volunteers, is provided free, but with contribution towards electric and tv licence.
