The Start of Something New

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 onย all things invertebrate. I will be mentored by Jon Webb from Natural England and Sarah Henshall from Buglife, two wonderful and passionate invertebrate experts.ย 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. ย Dr Chris Ellis, RBGE

  7. Congratulations -looks like a perfect position for you! I saw this come up on conservationjobs and was tempted to apply myself but I’ve decided to put my efforts in to applying for a master’s and improving my general wildlife conservation knowledge instead. Anyway, this is a really exciting opportunity and I enviously look forward to reading all about your invert adventures ๐Ÿ™‚
