Volunteer • Part Time


Sectors: conservation & wildlife, water & hydrology

Closing date: Sunday, 30th June 2024  

At WWT, we create and conserve wetlands and save species. We bring awe-inspiring nature up close and let it do the talking. We help people to feel part of something amazing and motivate them to make a difference.

In this role you will be visiting your local WWT wetland centre on a weekly basis to film wildlife spectacles and species for inclusion in a weekly wildlife update that goes out to our members and supporters.

What will you be doing

  • Capturing footage of the centre, its wildlife, wetland landscapes, events and people on a regular basis (depending on skill level)
  • Receiving direction from the Marketing and Communications Manager on requirements for specific pieces of footage according to the themes for each week, as well as taking ad hoc footage as great opportunities arise
  • Working proactively with the WWT Washington team to identify key events and sightings that would make engaging content

Who are we looking for?

No formal qualifications are required. However, you will be able to provide good quality examples of footage you have taken of wildlife, or have experience of watching wildlife. In addition, this role would be suitable for you if you:

  • Are proactive in seeking out filming opportunities
  • Are patient and willing to spend time waiting for the right filming opportunity
  • Don’t mind working in all weathers
  • Are comfortable with learning new technology and equipment, highly proficient with use of computers and able to quickly learn the process for file handling and transfer between centres and HQ at Slimbridge
