Are you a Qualified Vet or Vet Nurse?
Kick-start your 2018 with an incredible, life-changing and memorable experience living amongst wild animals and caring for our beautiful baboons. See the job posting here;
For 2018 we have a vet couple signed up to be with us for at least 1 year from end of March 2018 and therefore aren't looking to fill a free-stay role during that time. However, should their plans change we would still be interested in a back-up Vet and are looking to fill the role between now and mid March 2018.
We are opening the Free-Stay position to Nurses and Vets until end of March 2018. If you are interested please fill out an APPLICATION FORM & submit to firstname.lastname@example.org for review. Wishing you luck and we hope to meet you soon!
C.A.R.E. is run by volunteers from the bottom to the top and every day volunteers truly help and really do make a positive difference. Volunteers are the backbone of the organisation and dedicated, passionate individuals make a massive positive impact on the welfare of so many animals and their conservation as a whole daily. We'd love to welcome you to our team!
We employ 14 local African Staff, but the rest of the team are primarily 'Long-term Volunteers' or Voluntary Staff Members.
Long-term Volunteer means staying for over 3 months and being expected to train short-term volunteers, act professionally and friendly to short-term volunteers, work longer hours and typically doing (sometimes monotonously) the not-so-glamorous jobs. Some Long-term Volunteers may take on additional responsibilities and/or apply for specific roles.
Long-term roles are competitive and often are filled in advance, it's such a great way to add animal husbandry experience to your resume.
Opportunities can include;
Vet / Vet Nurse
Enrichment Internship / Enrichment Team Volunteer (3 Months)
General Sanctuary Operations Assistants
Phase 1 Rehabilitation Assistant (6 month minimum)
Fundraising and Marketing Volunteer
Conservation Education Assistant
As a Long-term volunteer, the Volunteer Donation fee to cover your Accommodation/ Food / Training is reduced and for some individuals (for example qualified and experienced vets) it can be vastly reduced or completely free in return for your skilled, professional help. See Volunteer Donation page.
“We, the C.A.R.E. team, would love to welcome you to join us as an important volunteer.
Please come and help us on our mission to rescue, rehabilitate, provide sanctuary and release animals.
Give yourself the opportunity to get to know such a misunderstood species. Prepare for the baboons to get under your skin and Africa to get into your blood.
Your life will be changed forever; many suddenly find their horizons boundless, priorities shifted and not only can Africa make a positive impact on your life; you can be the positive difference to the lives of so many too.”
