Volunteering

Bleakholt needs your help, we rely on our volunteers and couldn’t continue to provide the high standards of care to the animals without you.  Volunteering roles are vast and can range from volunteering at the charity shops, helping in the cafe to painting the fences, gardening, dog walking, jet washing and much more. You may want to organise a Fundraising Event or an online auction, or work in a particular area such as on Reception. Whatever your area of expertise, we’d be glad to hear from you about helping us out with our vital work caring for our animals. Here we provide information on the type of roles we have available and an application form if we are currently recruiting that role. If you feel you could spare a few hours and help in any of the vacancies listed, please complete the application form and a member of the team will contact you. Please note we only advertise roles where we currently have vacancies available.

Due to COVID-19 and the duty of care we have towards our staff, volunteers and visitors, our volunteering opportunities are severely limited, see below for any vacancies we have available
