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.  Due to the ongoing impact of the pandemic and our plans to support Conservation & Access Trainees and Community Engagement Rangers in 2022/23 we do not have capacity to offer further placements this 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.  Due to the ongoing impact of the pandemic and our plans to support Conservation & Access Trainees and Community Engagement Rangers in 2022/23 we do not have capacity to offer work shadowing opportunities this year.


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.

Due to the ongoing impact of the pandemic and our plans to support Conservation & Access Trainees and Community Engagement Rangers in 2022/23 we do not have capacity to offer work experience opportunities this year.
