Environmental Work Placements

Are you passionate about nature, community, sustainability or well-being? Take up a placement with Wild Ideas and come together as a team to develop and deliver your own projects, get trained and gain skills that employers really want.

We want you to have fun as you explore your chosen area… we’ve got a long time ahead of us as we move into our chosen careers and we think it’s really important that you enjoy it. So come and have a go if you think you’re wild enough…
