Volunteering and Vacancies



If you have a few hours to spare please consider volunteering for us. There is a wide range of ways you can help HART, some more mucky than others but all vital!

Please contact: help@hartwildlife.org.uk for more information.

Communication Manager

We're looking for a creative and strategic Communications Manager, on a voluntary basis, to help us raise our profile, increase our income and continue our work informing and educating people on how to protect local wild animals. Previous communications experience, including other voluntary roles, is desirable. For full details please see the job description.

Part-Time Shop Assistant

We have a vacancy at our shop for a part-time shop assistant. The successful applicant will initially be required to work two days a week, probably Wednesdays and Thursday, with flexibility to work Saturdays and extra days if and when required. Previous experience in this type of role would be preferred but is not essential. The Minimum Wage would apply.

Animal Carers

We are always looking for people who can volunteer regularly, from as little as one morning or evening a week, to help with the everyday duties that are involved with looking after and feeding  the injured and sick animals. Please bear in mind some of this hands-on work is cleaning cages and hutches; it can be pretty dirty work! Find out more on the Volunteer's Stories page.


We are currently looking for someone to co-ordinate our fundraising efforts - being the point of contact to keep everyone up to date and working together. Do you have a few hours free a month, and would like to really make a difference to the future of HART?

We are also looking for people to be involved in regular fundraising. This could be helping with stalls at fetes and shows, or organising your own fundraising event such as a coffee morning or sponsored walk. We are always looking for new fundraising ideas, so please get in touch.

We currently need volunteers to work in our shops in Alton. If you can give a few regular hours, or ideally a day in a week, please get in touch, either at the hospital or call into one of our shops.

Casualty Collections

We need volunteer drivers from all areas who can pick up small casualties from their local area and bring them over to us, as we often get calls from people who have found a casualty but are unable to bring it to us. Unfortunately we do not have enough staff, vehicles or time to collect them all, and so volunteer drivers are an essential part of the service we offer.


We are looking for someone who can join our team as Secretary. This involves putting together agendas and taking minutes for the Management Committee who meet every 6-8 weeks on a weekday evening near Basingstoke, and for the Trustees who meet 2-3 times a year. There may be other adhoc duties, such as writing official letters form time to time. This is a great way for someone to get involved in understanding what goes into the running of the charity. If you are interested, please contact laura@hartwildlife.org.uk with your details.


We are always looking for people to overwinter lateborn hedgehogs at their home, there will be training given. For more information, please see our fostering page.

Due to insurance stipulations all volunteers must be aged at least 16 years old.
