Closing date: Wednesday, 30th June 2021  


We're looking for outgoing and enthusiastic volunteers to assist with welcoming visitors to Spurn Discovery Centre, looking after the Discovery Room and passing on important information to visitors and staff. Welcome Volunteers will engage with visitors in our newly fitted-out Discovery Room and retail area as well as the area surrounding Spurn Discovery Centre. This role will add to our capacity to manage the whole nature reserve and encourage visitors to become more aware of Spurn and more involved with making a difference for wildlife in Yorkshire.

Spurn Point is Yorkshire's very own Lands End - an iconic and constantly moving peninsula which curves between the North Sea and the Humber Estuary. At over three miles long but as little as 50 metres wide, this landscape is unique and ever-changing.ย  Spurn has an extensive human history, leaving a legacy of fascinating but derelict buildings and hidden structures. But Spurn remains, and will always be, an utterly wild place. Always at the mercy of the elements, no two days at Spurn are ever the same!

Deadlines for applications is 9am, Wednesday 30th June- For more information and to apply please visit the YWT website
