Volunteer roles at Loch of the Lowes

Title: Volunteers at Loch of the Lowes (3 different roles available)

Status: Flexible, part time

Location: Loch of the Lowes Visitor Centre, Dunkeld

Closing date: We will recruit volunteers as they apply

Our visitor centre is getting ready for the new osprey and visitor season and we are looking for volunteers for one or more of the following roles:

  • Guide in the Hide volunteer – This role is perfect for volunteers with enthusiasm for birds and a desire to communicate this to visitors, providing them with a quality bird watching experience in our viewing hides overlooking the loch
  • Visitor Centre Volunteer – This is a front of house type role, meeting visitors, making them feel welcome and ensuring they have an enjoyable visit to our centre.  There are also retail and membership aspects to the opportunity.
  • Reserve Maintenance Volunteer – Help keep the path network and access to the centre clear and safe for visitors.  A more practical volunteer opportunity with less visitor engagement aspects.

Where possible, we will try to amend roles to fit around your existing skills.

What we are looking for:

  • availability over a period of time
  • someone able to offer around 3 hours per week
  • confidence in talking to the public

What you will get in return:

  • a great work environment with fantastic views
  • be part of a helpful and knowledgeable staff and volunteer team
  • work at our famous osprey site surrounded by iconic species
