WildHub is a global member-led community of conservation professionals. WildHub is managed by WildTeam UK.

The focus of the volunteer will be to support the Community Manager in growing the WildHub community, maintaining and improving the online platform, and encouraging engagement within the community. The work will be done remotely, and requires access to a laptop/PC and internet connection. 

Voluntary activities could include:

  • Processing new memberships (including verifying new members);
  • Promoting WildHub members and community content through WildHub’s Facebook page, Twitter and LinkedIn accounts;

  • Assisting in organising and implementing WildHub events and collaborative events with partners.

The most important qualities we look for in our volunteers is the “one team” approach. We select people who are highly motivated in achieving the WildHub’s goal, think of and/or positively participate in activities that bind the community together, help and respect others,  adhere to WildHub’s values and actively encourage diversity (e.g. in thoughts and actions). 

How to apply

Please complete this form by the application deadline. We will contact you by April 26th 2021 to arrange an online interview if we think you could be suitable.

WildHub Community Manager, WildTeam UK

My background is mainly in species conservation, education and capacity development. For several years, I researched mother-young interactions in gorillas and chimpanzees, in captivity and the wild. After that, I worked for three years in Indonesia, where I developed and implemented youth ambassador and community engagement programmes on local and regional scales. These programmes are aimed at building conservation capacity and promoting stewardship. I currently conduct my PhD research on the professional development of conservation professionals and work as Community Manager at WildHub.
