Welcome Team

At WWT we believe the best way for people to understand and connect to wetlands is to experience them, so we bring awe-inspiring nature up close and let it do the talking. People feel part of something amazing and are motivated to make a difference.

By providing an excellent visitor experience as a member of the visitor services team, you will be encouraging our visitors to make the most of their visit to Castle Espie Wetland Centre, and to understand and support our work to save wetlands for wildlife and people.

Tasks will include but are not limited to:

  • Working as part of the visitor services team (made up of staff and volunteers) to engage and inform our visitors about the Centre and WWT. As such you will need to develop a good knowledge of the history of WWT and Castle Espie Wetland Centre, its history, aims and objectives, information on the biodiversity of the Centre and conservation messages for WWT.
  • Meeting and greeting visitors on the admissions desk, and operating the till for admissions and the gift shop.
  • Providing information on request, alerting visitors to specific events of interest taking place at the centre on that day and for future events.

If you are someone with excellent communication skills and want to help save wetlands in a public facing role, then this could be for you!
