Tollie Red Kites Assistants

Friday 29 July 2011
Vacancy type:
Practical conservation

What we're looking for

This is an exciting project at the Red Kite Feeding and Viewing facility on the Brahan Estate, Ross-shire. We are very keen to tell as many people as possible about the amazing Red Kite and its story here in North Scotland. You will be fundamental in the smooth running of this centre, welcoming visitors, enthusing them about red kites and other birds, handing out information about the project and the RSPB, securing donations from visitors to help with the upkeep of the centre and recruiting members to the RSPB.

The skills you need

A reasonable knowledge of birds is an advantage but full briefings on red kites will be given during the induction process and in informal training sessions run on site. More important is an enthusiasm for these amazing birds, wildlife and conservation in general and the RSPB, also, to be comfortable speaking with members of the public either individually or in groups.

Your time

Minimum 2 half days per month
All year

What's in it for you?

This is a great chance to really get to know about the beautiful red kites of our region. You will meet like minded people and work within a friendly dedicated team. The opportunity to inspire and enthuse people whilst helping the RSPB deliver its conservation, membership and community fundraising objectives are further rewarding aspects of this role.
