What we're looking for
Located in the heart of the beautiful Isle of Islay, RSPB Loch Gruinart is a unique Scottish reserve. A working farm, it acts as a demonstration site where agriculture and conservation work together. The site has a modest visitor centre, two trails and two bird hides. From these there are panoramic views of Loch Gruinart, Gruinart Flats, salt-marsh and fresh water wetland. In spring and summer hundreds of breeding waders, sky-dancing hen harriers and the elusive corncrake find a home on the reserve. RSPB Islay welcomes over 15,000 visitors a year. We are looking for an enthusiastic residential volunteer to represent us, acting as first point of contact for many of these visitors to the reserves. We are offering a unique opportunity for someone with Public Relations, Marketing and Communication talents to use their skills in the field of wildlife conservation. You will assist in the daily management of the Visitor Centre, event organisation, guided walks, fundraising activities and a dynamic social media presence, providing our members and visitors with a unique visitor experience on our nature reserves.
