Volunteering Positions

Want to meet new people?  Develop skills?  Get involved in a project?  Why not join the team of volunteers at Monkton Nature Reserve?


As Monkton Nature Reserve is a charity, volunteers are at the core of our operations and we are now looking for new members to join our team to allow us to expand by offering more activities and events.



There are many opportunities – some for those who prefer to be outside, others inside our Field Study Centre with its shop, café, bird viewing area and extensive secondhand bookshop.


We appreciate whatever time you can offer – be it just a couple of hours a week or a full day – or even more!  So please contact us or simply download and complete the Volunteer Application Form if you feel you would like to join us and help us to expand on what we can offer all our visitors.


The following are some of the openings we have:


  • Greeters – to be in the Reception to welcome visitors on arrival and advise them of what there is to do at the Reserve.  Ideal for those who like public interaction.
  • Café – to serve tea, coffee and soft drinks to our visitors and to keep the kitchen area clean and tidy.
  • Shop – to keep an inventory of the stock, look for new items that will increase sales
  • Fundraising - to assist with expanding our calendar of events and activities.  This role will be working in conjunction with current staff, but needs someone to manage the Events calendar, make contact with possible speakers / workshop leaders etc.  This can be a home based volunteer role.
  • Bid writing for grants - this is a vital role as being a charity we rely on grants to continue our operations.  It can be a home based role.  We require someone with excellent written English and initiative.  You will need to research grant makers relevant to Monkton Nature Reserve and its activities and then complete applications for grants.
If you are interested in any of these roles, then please download and complete the Volunteer Application Form, return to us and we then look forward to an informal interview to discuss how you can join our team.


Thank you.
