WORK PLACE­MENTS

BBC Wildlife Magazine - - Advertisement Feature -

Get­ting a foot in the door might mean mak­ing the tea or pho­to­copy­ing but a work placement pro­vides in­sights into the re­al­i­ties of the job and the re­ward of hands-on ex­pe­ri­ence. Com­pe­ti­tion is in­tense for sought af­ter place­ments, such as at the BBC’s Nat­u­ral His­tory Unit ( www.bbc.co.uk/ca­reers/work­ex­pe­ri­ence) but there are plenty of other op­por­tu­ni­ties else­where. The Ed­ward Grey In­sti­tute of Field Or­nithol­ogy ( www.zoo.ox.ac. uk/egi/jobs/re­search-as­sis­tantsin­tern­ships) pro­vides ex­pe­ri­ence of a range of re­search tech­niques, while the CotswoldWildlife Park ( www.cotswold­wildlifepark.co.uk/ work-ex­pe­ri­ence) of­fers four-week place­ments work­ing with its rep­tiles, in­ver­te­brates, birds or mam­mals. The Na­tional Trust of­fers long-term in­tern­ships as well as vol­un­teer op­por­tu­ni­ties in its re­serves. And, of course, BBC Wildlife Mag­a­zine welcomes stu­dents on one- or two-week work-ex­pe­ri­ence place­ments ( www.dis­cov­er­wildlife.com/work­ex­pe­ri­ence).
