About us

Goodheart Animal Sanctuaries (GHAS) is a charity established to provide care and attention for animals in need. An exciting opportunity has arisen for a highly motivated individual with a passion for farm animal welfare to join the team. The individual will support the efforts of the charity to provide a safe and happy environment for all animals being cared for at the site whilst promoting the values of GHAS.

Alongside our rescue mission, one of our main goals is to change the perception of farmed animals through a dedicated Education & Outreach programme, which will encompass visits at our sanctuary, outreach work in the community, as well as an educational presence on digital platforms.

The visitor experience needs to be engaging and thought provoking; introducing visitors to our rescued animals and gently encouraging support for a plant-based lifestyle. All Goodheart’s animals are known individually.

The role will look to develop and encompass opportunities with schools and school groups such as hosting exciting and age-appropriate trips and workshops at our sanctuary and expanding this into outreach work within the community.

Alongside managing and delivering the Visitor Programme and Educational output for Goodheart, the role will also include:

  • Working closely with the animals, providing support for the Animal Care Team and developing a full understanding of animal husbandry and welfare practices at the sanctuary
  • Working closely with our Marketing & Communications Assistant to provide educational content for the website and social media platforms i.e. appearing in educational videos etc.
