Work placements and internships

We recognise the value of unpaid work placements to help people learn new skills, gain experience and help us achieve our objectives.  We seek to offer a small number of placements each year.

Work shadowing

A short placement suitable for people under 16 years old, or people who have little or no workplace experience. Shadowing involves observing a Dartmoor officer and getting involved in some work activities, to help you understand more about the role and the Authority.

Work experience

Work experience is for people over the age of 16 which may involve shadowing and getting involved in a wider range of tasks and activities. This could include anything from basic administrative tasks to running a small project.  

Placements with Rangers or with other officers working in remote locations or lone working environments are only suitable for people aged 18 and over.
