Working with us in Devon

There are many great reasons to join us at The Donkey Sanctuary, not least the quality of life that comes with living and working in Devon. 

Renowned for its fascinating heritage and scenic beauty, from the sandy beaches and surfing hotspots of North Devon across the wilds of Dartmoor to the palm trees of the 'English Riviera' and picturesque fishing villages of the South Coast, Devon is more than just a wonderful place to visit. The diversity of attractions and opportunities, coupled with strong transport links, make it a popular choice for people relocating from elsewhere in the UK to enjoy the lifestyle on a full time basis.

Should you need to relocate to the area in order to work with us we will be happy to advise on any queries you may have, and here are just some of the benefits of doing so:

• Working among a wonderful team of committed, creative and compassionate staff

• Being based in beautiful countryside in an Area of Outstanding Beauty in East Devon (including our award-winning restaurant!)

• A wide range of good schools in great towns and villages, and in University Campus city, Exeter.

• Good access to London, Bristol and Bath via road and rail

• Plentiful opportunities to travel 

• A strong organisational commitment to the health, well-being and development of our staff

• A warm welcome for your furry friends, as we are a dog-friendly workplace

• Excellent staff benefits including competitive salaries, holiday allowance, pension and parental leave

Exeter airport, local runners, some happy dogs and a holiday beach
