  • 1. Please give an overview of the virtual experience and what was involved on a day-to-day basis.
  • Each day had a different theme so whatever part of conservation you're interested in getting in to you will get the chance to hear from and talk to people who work in the sector. You also hear talks on general careers advise. Additionally at the end of each day we broke in to smaller groups to work on a marketing project, helped by the relevant speakers.


  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
  • I have learnt more skills in regards to career development. I have learnt how to optimise my CV and what sort of things I should be doing to get in to the sector. It has enabled me to focus my attention and do things to help my future employability.

    Business Insight

  • 3. What was it like understanding all about the business and potential roles available?
  • It was exciting to understand the range of different potential roles and learn how business function not just at Hengistbury Head but also at all the different businesses which had speakers. Being able to talk to the speakers after their talks allowed us to get a deeper insight in to different projects despite everything being online.

  • 4. What was the company culture and general atmosphere like?
  • The general atmosphere was friendly and relatively casual. You had to turn up on time and be respectful but there was no judgement and we could speak freely about whatever we liked not having to worry if our questions sounded dumb. It was great cause everyone was like minded and clearly shared a passion for sustainability and all the speakers and people running the event were so passionate about helping us out.

  • 7. Would you recommend BCP Council to a friend?
  • Yes

  • 8. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to BCP Council
  • You're not going to get an internship experience or real work experience this is just to help give you an idea of what to conservation sector is like and how to prepare to enter it. It's really useful and worth the time but if you already have a clear idea of what you want to do then it probably won't be as useful.
