About this Event

JENNY PHELPS MBE will talk about employment opportunities in conservation and the stark environmental challenges facing us in the coming years.

Jenny has been a passionate and expert voice working to implement more joined up and sustainable land-management and agricultural practices for over thirty years. She pioneered the Integrated Local Delivery model which she delivers as the Senior Farm Conservation Advisor for Gloucestershire Farming and Wildlife Advisory Group (FWAG) and teaches at the Royal Agricultural University. She has also presented her work at the Oxford Real Farming Conference and at other specialist working groups.

Jenny is a strong believer that military personnel of all ranks have a great deal to offer in rural conservation management and has provided work experience opportunities to a succession of resettling personnel in recent years. She has also worked on two projects to offer sustainable employment to ex-military in the field.

Every second Thursday, we meet in either the Tithe Barn or Alliston Centre. This time it's the Tithe Barn. (Park in the Royal Agricultural University (RAU) Stroud Road entrance and find us a short walk away near the Porters Lodge.)

Bring cash to buy your own drink and business cards if you have them. Most importantly though, just bring your best self and look forward to meeting like-minded useful contacts.

Connect with employers or potential employees, find a job or which courses are worth doing, get top tips, meet some-one who's already trodden a particular path.

See you there.

To give us an indication of numbers, please register but, if you have a last minute change of plan, don't worry - just turn up.

All ranks, all services, all employers. Relaxed, informal, helpful.
