Volunteer with Shropshire Wildlife Trust

Volunteering in Shropshire

Volunteering with us is a great way of learning more about the work we do on nature reserves and of meeting like-minded people who care about the natural environment. You'll gain experience and be able to use your skills to support our work.


  • Visitor Centre Services at The Cut, Shrewsbury: reception, membership recruitment, events and activities, hospitality, site maintenance and more,
  • My local groups,
  • Winter work parties – Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays,
  • Roving Reporter,
  • Outdoor Education support for Toddlers to teens,
  • Garden group support volunteer.

For more information on all these roles please download a description below. 

If you are interested in any of the above opportunities, please complete the online enquiry form and we will contact you within 10 days.

We will be recruiting for practical work parties on nature reserves from September.


First step: Complete the online form

Next step: We’ll contact you once we’ve received your form and if we think we have something to offer you then we’ll invite you to our next orientation session. If we don’t have anything to offer you we’ll sign-post you or ask you to come back to us in 6 months time.

Final step: Once you’ve attended this session, we’ll arrange an induction and agree a start date.

Some roles require two references so the whole process from initial enquiry to starting volunteering can take up to six weeks but once you’re on board we’ll offer you training, support and the chance to meet some great people! Other positions can start more quickly.

If you volunteer with us you’ll make new friends, meet like minded people, have fun, learn new skills, improve your knowledge of the natural world and make a real difference.
