This Wednesday I had a phone call that made me beam from ear to ear. The week before I had gone to Peterborough for an interview with Buglife and Natural England. They had loads of applications and I was honoured to even get an interview. However, on Wednesday they offered me the position!
The position is a Natural Talent traineeship organised by TCV. I will be working in Peterborough with Natural England and Buglife on all things invertebrate. I will be mentored by Jon Webb from Natural England and Sarah Henshall from Buglife, two wonderful and passionate invertebrate experts. I really can’t wait and remember reading this quote a while ago and wanting to get involved with the scheme. Bring on the invertebrates!
Natural Talent UK is effective in supporting exceptional individuals who go on to make a fundamental difference to our understanding of the natural world, and can effectively communicate the importance of nature to society. Dr Chris Ellis, RBGE
