What we're looking for
Volunteers are an essential part of the Ribble Reserves team, and we are looking for a well-organised friendly person to help us recruit and manage our valuable team of volunteers across our sites, making volunteering at the Ribble Estuary an excellent experience for both volunteers and staff. The person in the Volunteer Co-ordinator role will be key to assisting staff to manage current volunteers, as well as recruiting and inducting new volunteers when needed. This would include producing induction and promotional materials, keeping volunteers up-to-date with current news and projects, and finding ways to promote volunteering at the reserves and in the local area. If this is you, we'd love to hear from you. This role will be largely office or home-based, but you will be out and about meeting and talking to volunteers when the time is right. The role is for 1 day a fortnight. Day to day tasks will include responding to volunteer enquiries and general questions advertising new roles conducting interviews with potential volunteers assisting staff with the induction of new volunteers. There will also be administrative tasks such as recording volunteer hours registering new volunteers creating ID badges, organising rotas processing expenses claims. In addition we'd like you to champion volunteering at the Ribble Reserves and encourage feedback/sharing between volunteers via volunteer events, quarterly newsletter and RSPB's annual volunteer engagement survey.
