Bristol Zoological Society is a wildlife conservation and education charity, with an outstanding heritage and an exciting future. We are supported by around 300 volunteers across both sites (Bristol Zoo Gardens and Wild Place Project), who enhance our work across most departments and areas of activity.

We are looking for a Volunteer Coordinator to join our team of Volunteer Coordination staff, to manage our teams of volunteers on a day to day basis and to support the Volunteer Services Manager in steering the transition of our amazing volunteers from two sites to one.

Please be aware that his role involves weekend working.
