What we're looking for

You will have the opportunity to work with the visitor experience staff on projects that will improve connections with nature (for example, maintaining a mini-beast jungle and wildlife garden), helping art sessions for children, and, to a lesser extent, helping with the retail and catering operations to help deliver great conservation, fundraising and a high quality visitor experience.

The skills you need

We need a flexible person who wants to learn the about working with the public in a visitor centre. You will have an enthusiasm for wildlife and passion for the RSPB's work. A friendly disposition is a must, and a full clean driving licence is desirable. You must be aged 18 or over.
