Picton Environment Centre
Working Hours

Do you want to help contribute to your local environment and community? Love to chat with people? Do you love to meet new people and have a chat? Would you like to support environmental/conservation volunteering without getting dirty?
Then we'd LOVE to hear from you!
We are seeking a few friendly people to help man the Picton Environment Centre (PEC) premises in Picton. By helping out, you'll be representing and supporting the three amazing local organisations that share the premises - Picton Dawn Chorus, Kaipupu Wildlife Sanctuary and Envirohub Marlborough.

Duties/tasks include:

  • Engaging with the public and telling/sharing our story
  • Passing knowledge of local conservation
  • Selling / assisting customers with our products including pest traps, eco-friendly products and gifts that support three amazing local environmental organisations
  • Assisting in general housekeeping of the PEC space

Hours needed:
The PEC is currently open from 9am-3pm, Monday-Friday. We are seeking people to help us man the PEC to keep us open to the public during these hours. If you are available on weekends, we would also be happy to open the PEC on the weekends too!
We don't expect you to cover the full 6 hours at once (unless you would like to!), but a minimum of 2 hours would be expected at a time.


Friendly and reliable.
Passion for our local environment.
We are seeking like-minded people that can engage and chat with visitors (both local and from out of town) about our three organisations, what we do, how they can contribute, and how the products in the store can benefit both them and support our organisations.
Retail experience is beneficial but not essential as long as you have a willingness to learn something new!
Age: 16+

Time commitment:

Minimum 2 hours.

We appreciate any of your valuable time, so there is no minimum/regular time commitment expected, however we do expect good communication and dedication to the time you have committed to in advance. Regular commitments (even once per month) are also appreciated.
