What we're looking for
Do you have an interest in wildlife conservation, enjoy motivating others and a flare for leadership? If so, the Huntingdonshire RSPB Local Group is looking for you! RSPB local groups are run by enthusiastic volunteers to promote the aims of the RSPB in the local community. They offer RSPB members and the public the opportunity to get more involved in our work to save nature. Groups run activities like indoor talks and outdoor walks. They fundraise and campaign for the RSPB and attend local community events to inspire people to support the RSPB. We're looking for the right individual to lead the RSPB Huntingdonshire Local Group. You don't need to be an expert in birds - people skills are much more important for this role. Key Responsibilities of a Local Group Leader are: - To lead the group and encourage the development of a range of activities designed to encourage wide participation from the group membership and to attract new group members. - Attend a two day group leaders training workshop at our headquarters in Bedfordshire within your first year in role. - Maintain a two way communication with your Regional/Country Office and HQ in order to: disseminate any important news updates and messages to the committee and membership; seek guidance/advice where needed; notify the regional office of any changes to the committee. - Ensure that the group follows its constitution and abides by the advice/guidelines in the RSPB Handbook for Volunteer Groups. - Most important of all... HAVE FUN! If you are excited about the activities the group are doing, and thrilled to know that you are making a big difference to wildlife conservation in your local area, then the other volunteers in the group will be motivated too!
