A trainee is being sought to learn the skills to manage parklands and landscapes at Clumber Park.
Through the ‘Passport to your Future’ scheme, the candidate would become part of the National Trust team of Rangers and learn how to manage the trees, habitats, wildlife and animals in the National Trust’s parklands, including Clumber.
The pioneering scheme is to introduce greater diversity to the workforce and help to break down some of the barriers traditionally faced by some people when looking for a job in the heritage sector.
Applications are open to anyone but may be of specific interest to anyone with a disability, a lack of formal qualifications, who has been long-term unemployed or is from an under-represented ethnic minority group.
Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) the ‘Passport’ scheme offers one-year paid training of enthusiastic people. Trainees who go on to complete the scheme will gain a Skills Passport to help get them started on a career path in the outdoor heritage industry.
Trainees for the next intake will be based at Clumber Park, with ‘taster’ days planned for February.
