Guide in the Hide - Udale Bay, North Scotland Region
Nigg & Udale Bays, c/o NSRO
Why we want you
The Udale Bay Hide is an excellent facility offering visitors to the area an opportunity to view the wildlife of the Cromarty Firth in comfort. Being close to the village of Jemimaville means that the hide is vulnerable to minor vandalism and therefore needs a "watching eye" to ensure it remains in a clean and functional state. RSPB staff will visit the hide once a fortnight; a willing volunteer who is able to check the hide and carry out a brief tidy once or twice a week will ensure the presentation of the hide is kept at a high standard at all times. You will also need to be prepared to answer general questions from members of the public who might be visiting the hide.
What’s in it for you?
An excellent opportunity to be directly involved with RSPB's conservation work in North Scotland, gaining first hand experience of working with an environmental NGO. An opportunity to gain valuable experience of work in both the tourism and environmental sector. The chance to contribute to the work of one of Europe's largest conservation charities.
