COVID 19 - due to the current situation we are unable to process applications or confirm placements at this time. Hopefully, we can find a practical solution for volunteering to restart later in the year.
We are looking for adult volunteers to work alongside our zoo keepers on a long term basis. Our adult volunteers will be allocated to a specific animal section and will work alongside the same keeper for one day every week.
If you can spare at least a day a week and you live within easy travelling distance of Noah's Ark, we would love to hear from you.
All we ask is that you can commit to one specified date per week, are available during school holidays and can be with us for at least six months.
You need to be aged 18 or over and there's no upper age limit. You will be required to go through our interview process and a trial day before being offered a position. References may be asked for.
We have received some great feedback from our volunteers:
"Being over 18, I’ve been able to help on Outreach, which is such a good experience and I felt honoured to represent the zoo as I used to want to be like the zoo people that came to schools."
"The environment is so friendly. All keepers are interested in hearing about plans and previous jobs."
