Job Vacancies

Are you passionate about the welfare of animals? Are you interested in pursuing a career with animals and are looking to gain experience? Then a position at Hopefield Animal Sanctuary may be right for you! Any job or volunteer opportunities that become available will be uploaded to this page so please keep checking back for the latest positions.
Hopefield is home to over 100 species of animals, and over 500 animals in total!


Thank you for your interest in working with us - there are no positions available currently - please check back at a later date.



It’s no secret that we couldn’t do a fraction of what we do for our 600+ rescued residents without the care, time and dedication of our truly amazing volunteers, so first off a HUGE thank you to them all! We do, however, need a few more!

Do you have spare time and would love to get involved with a well-respected local charity dedicated to bettering the lives of animals in need? Are you looking for new and exciting ways of making friends and gaining valuable skills, while giving something back? Or maybe you’re looking to increase your fitness levels and step count?
From helping care for our 600+ rescued residents, lending a hand with DIY across our 53-acre site, serving food & drinks in Max’s Café, or manning a stall at fundraising events, there’s something for everyone!
No previous experience is required as full training & support will be given, but you must be age 16+.
To apply, please complete our application form here.
