Volunteers at Birdworld
We have opportunities to volunteer in several areas, depending upon your interest. These include working with any one of the following teams: Aviculture, Farm, Aquarium, Gardens, and Education.
We expect a commitment of time on a regular basis over an agreed time period, this is to ensure that any training we give is reciprocated by the time you give us. Our staff work from 8am each day, and have an average 8 hour working day. Volunteers can of course work different hours but these must be agreed in advance. We will provide a volunteer polo shirt for identification purposes, but otherwise expect you to provide your own clothes (unless specific protective clothing is needed for individual tasks undertaken). In all other respects we consider volunteers as members of staff and they are subject to similar policies as any other member of the team (but without financial reward of course!)
Our policy is that volunteers may well do similar work to paid members of the team, but allow us to achieve more than would be possible otherwise: a volunteer will never take the place of a paid member of staff.
If you are keen to pursue this further, then please consider your situation and the commitment you are willing to make, as well as which area you would like to begin your volunteering in.
You can then e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 01420 22140
