What does a volunteer at SEA LIFE Kelly Tarlton's do?

Volunteers will be assisting the Guest Experience team to deliver magical experiences and a helping hand to our guests. Such activities will include (but are not limited to) welcoming guests to the attraction, providing maps and information as guests enter, answering guest queries and directed them appropriately, as well as manning various displays to engage and educate guests on specific animals/topics such as conservation. As a volunteer, you should have the confidence to strike up a conversation and the ability to learn about aspects of the business, animals and topics for discussion with our guests. Don’t worry – we provide training for all volunteers.
