LEMUR+ is an exciting 3 year project (2014-2017), supported by Skills for the Future at the Heritage Lottery Fund, that combines real work experience of nature conservation organisations with training that includes the use of technology.  Certification for each participant is part of a project that prepares and propels trainees towards employment in the nature conservation / biodiversity management sector or prepares them with transferable skills to work in any job (taking with them an environmental awareness).   If you would like to work for a national park, a wildlife charity or a nature conservation government agency then LEMUR+ is designed to help you achieve that goal.


The Lemur+ Offering

Over 100 LEMURs have gone through our programme so far, 85%+ going on to jobs within the nature conservation sector.  The project design comes from a successful history dating back more than 20 years.

The LEMUR+ project provides:

4 month and 9 month training bursaries (which pay a living allowance) + external training grant + intensive local training all supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and hosted at  organisations such as The Marine Biological Association, Plymouth, Torbay Coast and Countryside Trust, Torquay, Herefordshire Wildlife Trust in Hereford and South East Wales Biodiversity Records Centre in Cardiff and others.

More detail at the project website. For more conservationjobs visit environmentjob.co.uk where we will advertise the LEMUR+ bursary positions.
