Why we want you

We know that we are facing a climate and biodiversity crisis, nature is in trouble, but we strongly believe that we can make a difference. 

The RSPB began as a campaigning organisation and have secured positive change on a whole host of issues. Now more than ever we need the support of as many people and communities as possible, who are willing to lobby their local, country and national governments, write letters, share our campaign asks on social media platforms and take part in campaign actions. We have lots of science expertise and conservation knowledge and need your help to communicate this to others, including decision makers, who are non-experts. 

This might be your first step into campaigning, or you might already be a social media influencer, or part of a local community, university or school campaigning group, we need you! The role has flexible asks on your time depending on the campaign and the urgency, no 2 weeks are the same but we will work together to agree work and time commitment.

The RSPB is the UK's largest nature conservation charity! Join our fantastic volunteers who are helping to inspire everyone to give nature a home and secure a healthy environment for wildlife. We will help you gain skills and give you an invaluable insight into our essential work.

  • Organising and leading local community events.
  • We have full-time campaigners across the organisation, working on local and national priorities. You will be working alongside these other
  • campaigners, who will also be able to provide you with support and guidance.

The skills you need

  • Specific skills required will be dependent on the campaign, but skills are
  • likely to include:
