Volunteers make a vital contribution to the work of TWIC by mobilising data for conservation use. If you have good Microsoft Excel skills, an eye for detail and are interested in gaining
experience working in the conservation sector, we have plenty of data processing tasks we need help with.
How you can help
Data processing volunteers are needed to support the processing of biological records for the TWIC area. Volunteers will be responsible for processing datasets from a variety of sources,
including computerising Scottish Wildlife Trust’s Local Wildlife Sites data for Stirling, Falkirk and Clackmannanshire areas.
Applicants must be competent in using Excel, have an eye for detail and be able to work well as part of a small team. An ecology-related degree and a good knowledge of the UK flora or other species group would be an advantage.

How much time will I need to give? We ask volunteers to commit a minimum of 1 day a week to volunteering. In return we can offer training where needed and can cover mileage expenses (@ 40p per mile).

Interested? If you are interested in volunteering please send your CV to Natalie Harmsworth, Acting Centre Manager, along with a brief statement of why you want to volunteer
and what you hope to gain from the experience. Note that volunteers are based at our offices at Vogrie Country Park, near Gorebridge (EH23 4NU). There is no public
transport to Vogrie - the nearest bus stop is 2 miles from the park at Edgehead.
