Volunteers & Interns

We are always keen to hear from volunteers wishing to assist with our research!

Volunteering with SAERI can be an exciting and rewarding experience.

Why volunteer?

  • Volunteering is a great way to support important research and find out more about our ongoing projects.
  • Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, learn new skills and strengthen your CV.

Who can volunteer?

  • There is no minimum or maximum age as long as you can make a useful and safe contribution.
  • If you do not have a Permanent Residence Permit or Falkland Islands Status you may need a volunteering permit, which we can help you apply for.
  • Student placements can be arranged through your school, college or university.

How much time would I need to commit?

  • As much or as little as you can spare!
  • There is no minimum time commitment, although some projects may be for specific period of time.
  • Some additional time may need to be factored in for travel to/from remote locations.

Where can I stay?

  • Most volunteers are from the local community and have their own accommodation.
  • If a project requires overnight stays in camp (away from Stanley) accommodation will usually be arranged.
