    Chimp and See

    SUBU Volunteering

    This opportunity takes place between 08 Jan 2020 and 20 Jun 2020.

    Virtual Volunteering Role to watch videos to help the Max Planck Institute learn about chimps and humans. For this project, they have collected nearly 7,000 hours of footage, reflecting various chimpanzee habitats, from camera traps in 15 countries across Africa. By scanning the videos from these traps and identifying the types of species and activity that you see, you’ll help them to understand the lives of these apes—their behaviours, relationships, and environments—and to extrapolate new ideas about human origins.

  • New Year's Resolution to get fit but can't deal with the gym? If you want to get a free workout whilst saving lives and the planet, volunteering in one of our Bournemouth Furniture warehouses could be the answer! We always need helpful people in our Furniture & Electrical stores to keep donated furniture moving from our vans to our warehouse, onto the sales floor, and then back to the vans for delivery when it sells! This role is physical and you will need to be able to lift light furniture items - but let us know if you can only do light duties; it all helps. Aside from moving furniture around, we need help building flat-packed new furniture, and booking each donated item on to our electrical stock file, so if you're handy with a toolkit and like to be organised, there are plenty of ways to help the shop raise money that funds life-saving research! What we can offer: • We can pay reasonable travel expenses as agreed with the Manager • We offer on-going support, a full induction and training opportunities • Flexible hours available - 4 hours a week that suits you is a huge help! • Take the chance to do a free NVQ in warehousing in store - gain a qualification with us • No experience needed - just a willingness to pitch in and work safely *Please note we are unable to accept volunteers aged under 16 and we cannot accept volunteers with unspent criminal convictions or who are subject to criminal registers/orders* Apply now and join our friendly teams in either the Winton or Poole shops - we get the work done and have a laugh whilst we do it! Save the planet by helping us keep recycled furniture moving and selling, save lives by helping us keep the shop operating and the funds go towards research into heart disease, and keep fit yourself - what more do you need?!
