How to apply

Recruiting the right people is so important, so our managers deal with their own vacancies. Find out more here.

Your application

If you’re interested in working for us, head to the RSPB job vacancies page. All RSPB job vacancies are advertised here. Each job gives you details of who to contact for questions and who to send your completed application to. We’re keen to open applications to everyone, and to make reasonable adjustments where they’re needed during the application process.

Our role profiles and additional information, where applicable, tell you everything you need to know about each job.

To apply, you’ll usually need to complete our application form. Please make sure you follow the instructions for the role you are applying for.

We want to know all about you and your skills. When you apply for a job with us, do more than tell us what you can do. We want to know how you’ve applied your skills, knowledge and experience (which could be gained in another sector), and how this will help you succeed in the role you’re applying for.

What happens next?

The RSPB is committed to keeping you informed about your application.

Once you have submitted your application we will confirm it has been received immediately and let you know if you have been selected for interview within four weeks of the closing date.

If you are selected for interview we will contact you to make the necessary arrangements.

Our interviews are conducted by a panel of at least two people and are competency based.

We will let you know in advance if there will be any practical tests or if you need to prepare a presentation.

You will have the opportunity to ask us questions about the role and how we work. We will also let you know when to expect to hear about the outcome of the interview.
