What's in it for you?

As an RSPB volunteer you are part of something big – a team of amazing and dedicated people who donate their time, energy, talent and skills to help birds and other wildlife. Volunteering in this role is fantastic opportunity to be part of a friendly team, meet like-minded people, make new friends, learn new skills or consolidate existing ones that can be applied to a range of industries both within and outside the charity sector. The RSPB is the largest conservation charity in Europe and by volunteering with us you will gain an insight into the varied work of this active and exciting organisation. One of the best things about becoming our Event Coordinator is the flexibility of the role. We need someone to volunteer for a minimum of 1 day a week but this could be split into two half days and occasionally undertaken from home (if the necessary equipment is available for use). Of course we'd be thrilled if you were able to commit to more than one day a week. You will also boost your CV by volunteering with a well-known charity - we'd supply you with a reference.
