Norfolk Wildlife Trust will be holding its first Nature Jobs Careers Fair at Sheringham High School.

Thanks to funding provided by the Norfolk Coast Partnership and the Green Recovery Challenge Fund, the trust will bring together a wide variety of conservation organisations to inspire young people to explore a career in Norfolk’s environmental sector.

The event, on Thursday, November 10, is aimed at young people aged 14 and above who live in Norfolk.

There will be the chance to speak to organisations working to protect Norfolk’s wildlife and natural landscape, including the Hawk and Owl Trust, the National Trust, the Greenlight Trust, the Norfolk Coast Partnership, the Norfolk Rivers Trust and many more.

Isabelle Mudge, NWT education officer, said: “Our new conservation careers fair is aimed at young people who want to find out more about jobs to do with nature and wildlife in Norfolk. 

“The Norfolk landscape is well-known throughout the UK for its rich wildlife and iconic landscapes. Our new event will offer young people a great opportunity to learn about the breadth of conservation work taking place across the county, and get inspired to consider a career helping to protect and restore Norfolk’s nature.

“From landscape management and wildlife recording to communications and inspiring community action, there is a career for everyone.

“We are all really looking forward to helping the next generation to take their first steps towards a job in such a vital sector.”

t The event will take place between 5.30pm and 7.30pm. No booking is required – just drop in. Visit
