Volunteer Recruitment Days

East Sussex Wildlife Rescue & Ambulance Service (WRAS) is running two Volunteer Recruitment days on Friday 29th and Saturday 30th April 2022.

There will be sessions at 10am, 12noon, 2pm, 4pm and 6pm each day and potential volunteers can book themselves on these sessions free of charge to come along and find out more about the work of the charity and the volunteering opportunities.

Each session lasts no longer than an hour in groups of no more than 5 people at the charities Casualty Centre on the A22 at Whitesmith - BN8 6JD - half way between Hailsham, Lewes and Uckfield.

The award winning community charity has been established since 1996 and is now looking to recruit additional volunteers to help with various roles including volunteer receptionists, rescuers, animal care assistants and orphan rearing volunteers all based at the centre in Whitesmith.

The recruitment is taking place primarily to help bolster volunteer numbers as we come out of covid and to help cope with the increased workload the charity now deals with.

"Volunteering at WRAS is so rewarding getting so close to our native wildlife and being able to make a positive difference in their lives and care" said WRAS's Volunteer & Student Work Placement Co-ordinator Ellie Langridge.

Volunteers need to be over 18.

    I have just semi retired as a midwife and now only work Thursday and Fridays and I would love to join your team of volunteers to help with animals in the wildlife setting.
    I am flexible, reliable and am used to working long shifts in the NHS which include night shifts and weekends.
    I would really like to join one of your recruitment days in April but as I still practice as a midwife on Fridays I am only able to do Sat 30th. Unfortunately when booking a session on Eventbrite it appears that all the sessions are full so I wonder would it be possible if you ever allow an extra person or if you have a cancellation list I could be added to please. I can do any time that day.
    If this is not possible then would you kindly let me know of any future dates that more sessions would be running.
    I would be happy to do any courses that help to enhance my knowledge and skills so any recommendations would be appreciated.
    Look forward to hearing from you
    Very best wishes
