Dennis Clarke, TRP's Head of Park Services, said: "We are very pleased to partner with the Berkeley Foundation to provide one lucky apprentice the opportunity to work alongside experts in conservation, wildlife and horticulture, in some of the most visited and well known parks in the country.
"Despite its central location, The Regent's Park is an important haven for wildlife with 102 hectares designated as a Site of Metropolitan Importance for Nature Conservation, and we hope the apprentice can help us build on our ongoing conservation plans."
