What we're looking for
RSPB Pagham Harbour and the nearby RSPB Medmerry reserves together provide an internationally important wetland site for wildlife. The Visitor Centre at Sidlesham is a big part of our reserve operations and is the place to learn more information about the reserve and the RSPB, as well as get a welcome cup of tea! Key to this is our dedicated team of Welcome volunteers who ensure that there's always a friendly face to greet anyone who visits the reserves. We're looking to build this team, so are looking for more volunteers from all backgrounds to help us enthuse visitors to RSPB Pagham & Medmerry. Key tasks would include: * Helping visitors get the most out of their visit by chatting to them about the site, the wildlife that lives there and the work that we do (NB you don't need to be a wildlife expert, we'd teach you all you need to know beforehand) *Helping to answer visitors questions, listening to their feedback and ideas about the reserves. * inspire & enthuse visitors about the work of the RSPB by sharing our stories, and encourage them to support the RSPB through membership, volunteering or donations. *Explain our Covid safety arrangements to help everyone have a safe visit. We'd also really welcome your help with COVID-safe activities, such as wiping down touchpoints in the Visitor Centre and toilets. However, if this is something you'd rather not do, then just let us know. We'd provide you with everything you need to carry out your role including a full induction and training relevant to the role. Your time and skills will make a real difference to the work of the RSPB and it would be great if you could join us.
