  • Computer literate, with experience of Microsoft Office 2016 – including Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint – as well as some knowledge of Office365 and Sharepoint will be advantageous.

Appropriate training will be provided and expenses will be re-imbursed where necessary.

The RSPB is the UK's largest nature conservation charity, inspiring everyone to give nature a home. Together with our partners, we protect threatened birds and wildlife so our towns, coast and countryside will teem with life once again.
