Corporate Team Challenge - Portmore Lough

Posted:
Thursday 23 May 2013
Vacancy type:
Practical conservation, Corporate and employee volunteering
Location:
Portmore Lough

What to expect

Much of our nature reserve management can only be carried out by hand because heavy machinery could disturb the important wildlife we are working to protect. As an independent registered charity we rely on volunteers to help us carry out this work.

Your group

We will provide all necessary tools, materials and protective items (PPE). Please bring appropriate clothing for the time of year – sun hats and sun cream plus lots of water to drink if hot and extra layers and waterproofs during the colder months. Please also wear stout boots or shoes. You are covered by our comprehensive public liability insurance and we provide risk assessments and a safety briefing prior to the start of your day. A warden will be with you at all times and there will always be at least one first aider close-at-hand throughout the day.

Support us

Minimum:
1 day
Duration:
1 day
Period:
All Year Round

The skills and time provided by corporate teams are incredibly valuable to the RSPB. Corporate work parties help us tackle jobs that would otherwise take our wardens days or even weeks to complete. Employee volunteering also helps us to build community links and valuable business support, and many of our business volunteers return to our reserves with family and friends after their volunteer experience. Some even join as members and become life-long supporters.

How you will help us

RSPB Team Challenge offers an unusual and cost-effective alternative to the myriad of outdoor 'corporate training' days now on offer. Your employees will join regular RSPB staff at one of the RSPB's top nature reserves and become 'Wardens' for a day - making a real contribution to wildlife conservation while working as a team and having fun.
