Off the Beaten Track – Summer School for Anthropologists

The Off The Beaten Track summer field school is held annually on the island of Gozo, one of the three inhabited islands of the Maltese Archipelago in the heart of the Mediterranean.

The field school runs for 20 days, during three editions in the summer of 2019 (see exact dates on the home page). The working days of the week will be reserved for fieldwork and individual guidance by a staff of academic experts and professional anthropologists.

The focus of the program lies in the socio-cultural spectrum of anthropology and focuses on fieldwork practice. Participants are asked to develop and carry out an individual research project over the course of 3 weeks.

This could be a fantastic opportunity for those wishing to take the SE534 Special Project in Social Anthropology!

Opportunity for paid bat survey work

The opportunity:  Paid experience of ecological (bat) survey work in the context of a large ecological consultancy project.  If we identify a need for further assistance, there may be opportunities to extend your survey work with us to other species within late summer and autumn 2018.

If you have an interest in developing a career in ecological consultancy, this opportunity will be of particular relevance. However, this work will be of interest to anyone with an interest in ecology.

Rate of pay and travel expenses: Rate of pay: £50.00 per survey visit completed.

Travel expenses: For drivers, we will also reimburse mileage claims (from place of residence to site and back) at £0.55 per mile. For those travelling by public transport (which may not always be possible due to the timing of the survey visits), we will reimburse pre-agreed travel expenses

Work at the Wildwood Trust

Visitor Services and Park Assistant

The Wildwood Trust is looking for dynamic and reliable people to join their team of Visitor Services staff. This position requires outgoing and positive people who are passionate about the crucial work the trust does in protecting British wildlife, and who would be able to convey this passion to our visiting public.

The job will include roles and responsibilities such as recruiting members to our cause, working in the shop, cleaning, stocking, car parking, manning our hugely popular drop slide and bear bridge as well as interacting with the public on a daily basis. The job is a mix of indoor and outdoor work, and every day will be different! All new staff will be given full training in all areas.

The position is part time, seasonal with the possibility of permanent work, and we are a 7 day a week tourist attraction so being available for weekends and school holidays is a must. Hours are flexible and we are a seasonal park, so the length of the working day changes throughout the year.

If you are interested, please send a CV and cover letter to Laura Shea at help@wildwoodtrust.org

Interviews will be arranged with you, and the position is for an immediate start ready for the 2018 season.
