About The Role

Our wetland centres shape unforgettable experiences for our visitors to engage with wetland wildlife and learn more about the amazing work  WWT does to conserve wetlands and species around the world.
 
A good cup of tea and a relaxing snack looking over our beautiful wetlands are an important part of that experience. Plus, all the profit from our cafes and shops goes back into funding WWT projects. 
 
We're looking for friendly, welcoming people to help in our café and make that experience a great one.
In this role, you will be:
  • Serving our visitors light meals, snacks and drinks
  • Helping keeping our café tables clear, clean and free for use
  • Engaging with our visitors, directing them to our seasonal highlights and daily talks, helping them to make the most of their visit
  • Supporting behind-the-scenes with tasks such as washing up and sorting deliveries - keeping us on track
  • Helping with food displays- helping visitors to make those tricky choices!
Our café has an amazing view of the reserve and you'll be able to watch the seasons change whilst helping visitors to have an enjoyable day.
 
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

 
If you have a positive, friendly and can-do attitude and are happy to get stuck in, always keeping our customers in mind, this could be the role for you. You'll enjoy working alongside our staff team, interacting with visitors and helping make their experience in our café a great one. 
 
A good general knowledge of food safety and hygiene would be helpful, but we’ll give you training and the information you need.
