    Trainee !! With the experience required in the job description i think its a bit more than a trainee post. You'll require several college/university qualifications and lots of hands on experience too. Salary is pretty crap also

    They are looking for a fully qualified person who is willing to work for trainee wages

    I looked at this, and like most others thought its not a trainee position. Required qualifications and experience mean that theres very little professional qualifications left to gain.
    Welsh speaking isnt a must have, but you must be able to speak a little and not *******ise place names like I do, much to my other halfs disgust!!!

    I think they may be having problems filling the posts. Originally there were two trainee posts advertised on the FC website about two months ago. In last weeks Shooting Times the trainee position based in Resolven was re advertised. Suspect the salary is putting most people off, only usefull if the applicant is unemployed at the mo, plus it is only an 18month contract with the possibility of being made permanent. I'm not sure what has changed, but with the old system the Ranger/protection officers were recruited internally and trained in house.

    It would not be advertised externally if it had already been filled internally (why go to the expense?)(possibility someone internal might apply to an externally advertised post, internal recruitment probably already tried though). It might lead to a Wildlife Ranger post, and those jobs are like hens teeth now. FC staff will be retiring and many many taking vol' redundancy due Govt' cut backs. They can't determine where gaps open up and have a commitment to manage wildlife/deer. They have almost 100% block on recruiting at present.

    If the work appeals, it isn't all about money. Have a punt.

    270 I applied for this job and my 22 years experience of stalking/Hunting& game keeping and all the other experience i have gained in all the different jobs i have done around the world, also willing to take a 10k ayear pay cut i still did not get the job,, i think and this is my opinion it is a requirement for them to go externally and advertise, these jobs are already filled either internally or it's a case of who you know not what you know,,
