Volunteer to make a world of difference at Slimbridge Wetland Centre

Posted on 31 Jan 2020

We are looking to recruit volunteers within visitor facing roles to help support our visitor experience team.

Whether you’re looking to meet new people, learn new skills or spend time in an inspiring environment, there’s a volunteer role for you at Slimbridge Wetland Centre. Just a few hours spent volunteering can make a world of difference.

Thanks to support from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, we have been developing nine new exciting and immersive wildlife experiences to help visitors get even closer to nature.

We are looking for volunteers to help with a variety of engagement roles from welcoming visitors to the centre, leading tours of Scott House to guiding visitors through our new exhibits.

Fran Penny, Visitor Experience Manager said “We are recruiting volunteers to help bring our exhibits to life, engaging visitors in our conservation work and wonderful wetland species!”

Volunteers from all walks of life are welcome to apply, and the flexible volunteer opportunities available range from regular commitments to just a few hours and can be adapted to suit your circumstances.

Visitors are invited to attend a Volunteer Open Day on Wednesday 4 or Saturday 7 March from 1pm to 4pm where teams will be on hand to answer all your questions. There will also be a chance to join an introductory guided walk, or attend a talk on the Slimbridge 2020 project. There’s no need to book, just turn up on the day.
