Sectors: conservation & wildlife

Closing date: Not specified, apply soon!

Our visitor volunteers work across the visitor centre and the lakeside viewpoint, making a large flexible team whose focus is great customer service and promoting this special nature reserve.

We know that wildlife inspires people, so interpreting the wildlife here is important, whether its pointing out swans or swallows, hoverflies or hawthorn, you will inspire visitors to get closer to nature.

The visitors centre will have basic refreshment facilities and equipment to hire, you will help visitors get what they need. You will also collect car parking payments at the till and help with keeping the welcome area clean and tidy.

RSPB membership really is the lifeblood of the society and underpins every single thing we do. Introducing visitors to the idea of membership is important too. 

You'll need to have the confidence to strike up conversations with strangers, a desire to help, an enthusiasm for wildlife and conservation, but most importantly of all, you'll need a friendly demeanour and a ready smile! 

This role will suit someone who loves to meet and talk to visitors and who would gain satisfaction from passing on their passion about wildlife. It's also a great opportunity to work at a unique wildlife reserve learning more about birds and wildlife whilst making a real difference to the work of the RSPB.
