You will be telling people about our amazing work and the benefits of RSPB membership.

The skills you need

Do you love wildlife and like a good chat? We need friendly, approachable people who enjoy being outside and want to share their passion for all things wild with visitors to the reserve. You don't need to be an expert - general knowledge and enthusiasm is more important!

What's in it for you?

The opportunity to be the public face of the RSPB out on the reserve and to be an essential part of the reserves team. You will get to learn more about the reserve and enjoy the great outdoors, plus you will be passing on your knowledge and skills to many people of different ages and backgrounds. This is a very fulfilling role, just imagine gathering a group of people together to show them their first ever kingfisher!
