Placement with Biodiversity Taskforce and International Biodiversity Policy, Welsh Government

Deadline: 13th August 2021

The Land, Nature and Forestry Division of the Welsh Government is seeking a PhD student for a placement opportunity within its Nature Policy and Environmental Governance policy teams. The teams are responsible for the development of aspects of the Welsh Government’s biodiversity policy including international biodiversity, and, implementation of the Nature Recovery Action Plan for Wales.

The placement provides an opportunity to gain insight into the functioning of Welsh Government and evidence-based policy development at the highest level. The post-holder will work in an interesting and diverse team, contributing to the delivery of a cross-government programme in an area of policy in which, through its legislative framework, Wales leads the UK.

The role will be full-time and is normally based with the policy team in one of Welsh Government’s regional offices. In view of current Covid-19 restrictions, the post-holder will be required to work from home in-line with working arrangements for all Welsh Government employees and it is unlikely that this will change for the foreseeable future.

The placement will be for a 3 month period and will focus on delivering the objectives set out in the job specification. The option to extend for a further 3 months is possible if the project team feel there is merit in doing so and if it is compatible with the post-holder’s university research schedule and DTP/CDT arrangements.
