Long term volunteers required

We have spaces for long term volunteers for 6 months starting in March 2011 and we are taking applications. We are looking for LTV's in the following departments:

  • Engineering
  • Biology
  • Courses
  • Productive Gardens
  • Display Gardens
  • Information
  • Media
  • Website Development
  • Publications
  • Buildings and Maintenance
  • Visitor Centre Marketing
  • Visitor Centre Displays

Anyone over 18 can apply to be an LTV. In return we offer a unique work experience and learning environment.

Most LTV's are invited to come for a trial week at CAT before they can be accepted for a longer stay. Trial weeks exist to allow the potential volunteer to check out what we do and to see if they would be happy being here for six months, and also to allow the department to meet them and find out if they have the relevant skills and will fit in with the team. A informal telephone conversation will probably be in the initial contact

For further information please look under the long term volunteering section on this website or contact

Also read interviews with our current volunteers about their experience working at CAT.

Please note, a CAT Application Form is not necessarily required for applying for these positions. A CV and detailed covering letter is adequate but please do look at our volunteering pages for more information.

Closing date for applications is 7th January 2011. If you have any questions or would like to speak more about any of this, please do get intouch. Michelle Clarke, 01654 705955,
