About this opportunity

Wildlife Rescue Phone Coordinator | Team Member:

Join the supportive Rescue Phone Team and assist our wildlife by giving advice and finding solutions to assist wildlife in need in South Australia.

You will need:

  • mobile phone
  • to install 3 apps on your phone
  • to be able to fill in online forms

SOWFI provides:

  • full training and resources
  • a supportive team to contact for assistance

Our 4-hour phone shifts cover 24 hours 7 days a week and you must be available to work at different times across the week, including weekends. In the beginning, you would work in tandem with an experienced operator. Your shift times would be worked out with you and the Roster Coordinator, taking into consideration your ongoing commitments.

Ideally, you will have some knowledge and experience with wildlife but it's not essential. If you love wildlife and love helping people and animals, you will love this role. You will learn a lot about our common species that come into care and how you can provide assistance to members of the public, or call out one of our Wildlife Rescuers.

We are Centrelink Approved.
