About The Role

We're looking for a videographer to join our marketing team, volunteering a few hours each week to film around our wetland centre and wild reserve. 
 
What you'll be doing:
  • Capturing footage of the centre, its wildlife, wetland landscapes, events and people on a regular basis (depending on skill level).
  • Receiving direction from the Marketing and Communications Manager on requirements for specific pieces of footage according to the themes for each week, as well as taking ad hoc footage as great opportunities arise
  • Working proactively with the WWT Washington team to identify key events and sightings that would make engaging content
Volunteers are an essential part of the WWT team. You'll get a warm welcome, including information on training, equipment and anything else you need. 
 
If you are interested in volunteering for WWT but don't wish to apply online, please email [email protected] or leave a message at 01453 891 231 with your name and number. 
 
 
 

About You

No formal qualifications are required. However, you will be able to provide good quality examples of footage you have taken of wildlife, or have experience of watching wildlife. In addition, this role would be suitable for you if you:

  • Are proactive in seeking out filming opportunities
  • Are patient and willing to spend time waiting for the right filming opportunity
  • Don’t mind working in all weathers
  •  Are comfortable with learning new technology and equipment, highly proficient with use of computers and able to quickly learn the process for file handling and transfer between centres and HQ at Slimbridge
