Help us give nature a home
RSPB Fundraising Direct was set up in 2009 and is the RSPB's own face-to-face fundraising agency. We were set up to combine the best of the agency culture together with all the advantages of working directly for the RSPB, Europe's largest conservation organisation.
The RSPB is no stranger to face-to-face activity. Back in Victorian times it was one of the first street campaigning organisations. The RSPB evolved this form of community campaigning into recruiting new members to the charity through face-to-face engagement on RSPB nature reserves, at country fairs, farmers' markets and most recently at private sites like shopping centres and supermarkets. This is where RSPB Fundraising Direct comes in.
RSPB Fundraising Direct has a fantastic Venues Team, who are responsible for booking sites for our face-to-face fundraisers to engage with and inspire members of the public to support us by becoming long term RSPB members.
Over the years, we have continued to expand our ever-growing team of Fundraisers and currently employ almost 70 fundraisers across the country, divided into regional teams, with our head office in Hove, East Sussex. Our fundraisers are a passionate, pioneering and professional group, from varied and diverse backgrounds and are attracted by the great benefits, progressive training and excellent working culture that we offer. Many have come from other fundraising agencies or sales roles and are attracted by the benefits of working in a fantastic team culture and career progression opportunities. Others are passionate about conservation and have come to us with the drive to become successful fundraisers, raising more money for the vital work the RSPB does.
Whatever path you have taken to get here, it's your future we are interested in.
