The Alderney Wildlife Trust (AWT) has a number of volunteer and educational postgraduate placements available each year providing unique and essential experiences in the world of wildlife conservation.

Placements can range through ecology, conservation and reserve management, biological recording and IT. Many of our past placements now have successful careers as ecologists, reserve managers, environmental consultants and community officers.  Some have moved on with their education and we are please to say several have now gained their PhDs.

Our day-to-day activities are never the same, and if you enjoy working in a small team with a variety of interesting challenges then check out our available positions.


The AWT also supports university work placement schemes and field courses.  All applicants should:

• Send a complete CV with covering letter by post or email:

• Be prepared to have an initial phone interview. You may then be asked to come to Alderney for further interview at your own cost. 

The AWT may also consider volunteer placement applications even if there are no positions currently advertised.  Please feel free to make an enquiry including your CV and covering letter as above.

No current vacancies.
