Students/ Volunteer Work.

Thank you for your interest in Devon and Severn Inshore Fisheries Conservation Authority. 

We receive many enquiries and requests every year for work experience placements, volunteer opportunities and university student placements. 

There may be some opportunities for volunteer work in the future, assisting with shellfish intertidal surveys.

This page will be updated in due course as and when positions become available.

In the meantime, we ask that you do not send unsolicited CVs or expressions of interest as these will not be retained.

We have accepted university placements in the past and are currently in the process of creating a policy for student placements and dissertation projects.

Unfortunately, at the current time we do not have any openings for university work placements (e.g. ‘year in industry’ or dissertation projects), and we are no longer accepting year 10 work experience placements.
