We are looking for an enthusiastic and committed `people person’ to work for the RSPB on a seven month project on Islay. This is an exciting opportunity to live amongst and promote Islay’s amazing wildlife and rich heritage.

Main responsibilities will include welcoming visitors to the reserve and enthusing people about Islay and our work here. Duties will include managing and delivering a busy programme of walks and talks, as well as other events and activities, designed to raise awareness of our work, generate funds and memberships, as well as assisting reserve staff as required. If you are a good communicator, are passionate about wildlife and have the ability to deliver this enthusiasm to visitors in a remote and beautiful location, this is the post for you. A flexible approach to work is required, as are excellent organisational and presentation skills and a sound knowledge of birds and other wildlife. Full driving licence essential.
