Volunteer Guides
Guided group at ZealandiaPosition Description

Commitment: Two shifts per month

As a ZEALANDIA Guide, you get to learn about some of our rarest native species and share these stories with visitors from all over the world. Once you have completed your training, you go on the roster to deliver ZEALANDIA’s programme of free talks and guided walks.

If you have the right skills and interests and can commit to at least one full day or two half-days a month, then we would love to hear from you. We are particularly interested in hearing from people with previous customer service experience and those who are available to work weekend, public holidays and school holidays. Experience with guiding, training or working with groups of people is preferred but no prerequisite. People who speak foreign languages are particularly sought-after.

Full training is provided.
