We are a small business with exciting times ahead of us, so are looking for a person who is enthusiastic, hardworking and passionate about Birds of Prey, and able to make a commitment to volunteering with us.
We are located in West Yorkshire, approximately 10 minutes from Holmfirth. There is a bus stop close by for those that do not have their own transport.
The health and safety of our birds is of highest priority and we are looking for someone willing and able to learn to our same high standards. In exchange for your time, we will provide training in caring for Birds of Prey. People who show a real dedication will be given further training and go on to food preparation and bird handling. There may also be the opportunity for outstanding volunteers to receive LANTRA training and assessment.
It is physically demanding, and is all year round no matter what the weather conditions are like, so you need to be willing to continue even when it's cold and damp!
Most of our work is about looking after the birds, and not handling the birds. You will not be handling the birds after a few visits, so will need to be prepared to put in the hard work first before this training would begin. Most of our 'jobs' are messy. Aviaries, baths, equipment etc all need cleaning regularly, as well as painting and tidying of other empty areas.
If all of this has not put you off, please use our contact us form to send to us your details, a little bit about yourself and why you would like to volunteer with us.
