Sectors: environmental education, conservation & wildlife

Closing date: Tuesday, 30th April 2024  


We’re WWT, the charity for wetlands and wildlife. We’re on a mission to restore wetlands because they are a wondrous solution to our world's problems. Together we will unlock their power – and help nature burst back to life. Because when wetlands flourish, all life will flourish.

We lead the way, bring life and inspire connection.

At WWT we believe that the best way for people to understand and connect to wetlands is to experience them, so we bring awe-inspiring nature up close. You will be directly involved in shaping our visitors’ unforgettable experiences through your warm welcome, your interaction with them and the information that you provide. We need enthusiastic people to engage with our visitors and to help them to make a connection with wetlands through our activities.

Why do we need you? Why volunteer with us?

  • Delivering wildlife activity sessions to families e.g., pond dipping, bug hunts for a half day at the weekend
  • Helping with seasonal children’s activities such as Pumpkin carving, Christmas crafts or even being an elf!

Who are we looking for?

No previous experience is required as training will be provided. However this role will suit you if you have a love of wildlife and the outdoors:

  • Experience either in an educational setting or in an environment involving children would be an advantage.
  • Reliability and people who are prepared to make a commitment to volunteering.
  • Confident in talking to the public.
  • Able to work in a team of staff and volunteers.
  • Keen to give our visitors a first-class experience.
  • Able to communicate well to a diverse range of people, young and old.
