Certificate students get jobs! 7 in one week!

We have heard from 6 of last year’s Certificate students this week that they have got jobs as Graduate or Assistant Ecologists! It has been hard to get jobs over the winter with lockdown as well but these students have been persistent and it has paid off! Well done everyone!!

Milla’s story:

Before starting the Certificate with Ecology Training UK I had undertaken a Master’s in Wildlife Management and a variety of wildlife volunteering. I had a re think about what to do and came across Ecology Training UK Certificate course. I decided to risk spending my overdraft on the course fees to undertake it, and I’m so glad I did. The wide variety of skills taught on the course are consolidated into a clear direction and this structure has directed my haphazard wildlife knowledge into a specific job and career. I was immediately able to work as a freelance wildlife surveyor as a result of the specific training provided, and the course has paid for itself already through this freelance work. I found it hard to feel good enough to put myself out there, but Sue Searle filled me with confidence to be able to send out emails asking consultancies to sub-contract me, and after gaining a variety of different Protected Species survey experiences, doing more volunteering with the Bat Conservation Trust and a zoom course in Kaleidoscope Bat Sound Analysis software I was able to apply for full time consultancy jobs. Now I have been offered a job as Assistant Ecologist for the upcoming survey season and I can’t wait to get started!

Mark says:

“I have just got a job at Jacobs as an Assistant Ecologist! I am really excited for all the opportunities this new job brings and I would never be as far as I am without your [Certificate in Ecological Consultancy] course.

This course has changed the trajectory of my life and everything I’ve learnt has given me a new lens to look at the natural world and be enthralled by its complexity and beauty and see what else there is to learn.

The Certificate course is also a great welcoming net of people who have been in similar positions to me and become successful too, it is a great boost when networking to have that friendly face that has been through the same things and is able to help out too.

Many Thanks,”

Well done to Casey, Milla, Rachel, Mark, Ella, Amberlea, Robyn, Christine, Katherine and Ollie!
