Hello, I’m Laura!
I work for the Scottish Wildlife Trust as a Conservation Officer for Saving Scotland’s Red Squirrels.
I started out with a degree in Countryside Management at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth. After that I had a few different Ranger positions across the UK. For the past two years I have been working on the squirrel project.
If anyone wants to find out more or get in touch, you can find me on Linkedin.
In terms of benefits I’d like to get out of this training...
- My contract is expiring next year so I’d like to gain more skills and knowledge before that to help me when applying for jobs.
- I recently completed the PMWC course in Nov/Dec and found it very useful in my current work. I feel like this course will also help me.
- In the last course I also found it interesting to hear other people’s experiences, it was a great opportunity for knowledge sharing that I really enjoyed being part of.
