Visitor Experience Volunteering


Our visitor experience volunteers are the people that raise awareness and understanding of HCC visitors by interacting and engaging with them about the work we do and by using appropriate resources to do so.

Is this important?

The short answer is, very! These volunteers help us spread or mission and message to the guests that visit us in a personal way, which is what we as an organisation, and our visitors like! There are numerous ways in which our visitors can get involved in what we do, just by visiting us! Experience volunteers are able to help our visitors learn and discover more about us as on organisation and the good conservation work of zoos around the world.


We generally ask that visitor experience volunteers are available between 9.30 and 15.30


Our visitor experience volunteers are here to ask questions that are aimed at helping people discover more about the centre, the animals we look after, and the work that we do. We aim to do this in a fun, relaxed and informal manner. During busy periods visitor experience volunteers will manage our walk-through exhibits, engaging with visitors about the animals they are close to.

What do we look for?

We look for outgoing people with an understanding and friendly approach to duties. You should be passionate about the natural world and what we do here, as well as being willing to learn. Communication is key within this role!

Skills or experience?

You need to be reliable and flexible.

You also need to have a genuine interest and passion for what we strive for here at the HCC, along with good sense of humour!

Will you get training?
