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.

Welcome Hosts help us create a great first impression. They’re on hand to provide a warm welcome and help visitors make the most of their day at Martin Mere. You will engage with our visitors and meet people from all walks of life by getting a chance to show off your skills in customer service. You will help every visitor leave the centre with a deeper understanding of WWT and the work we do to save wetlands for wildlife and people.

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 and let it do the talking.

What will you be doing?

  • Acting as the first point of contact for all visitors to Martin Mere, providing them with a warm welcome along with appropriate information to aid their visit.
  • Conducting specific talks to the public – scripts and training are provided.
  • Conducting guided walks of the grounds and the reserve when required – again, training is provided.
  • Handing out bird seed to visitors and assisting in bagging the seed.
  • Assisting with serving visitors drinks and ice-creams from the kiosk.
