What we're looking for

Our dynamic Face to Face team goes out and about to events and venues across the region, inspiring people to support the great work we do. At busy events (which take place mainly at weekends and during school holidays), we need the help of enthusiastic volunteers to help us deliver. We'll be asking you to welcome and engage with visitors to our stand, as well as helping to run some simple kids activities that we put on. At time, there may be the opportunity for you to sign up new members. You may also be asked to help set up and break down the stand, which could include handling a marquee.

The skills you need

If you have an outgoing personality, like to meet new people and have good communication skills, you could be just the person we're looking for. You'll also need to be passionate about the natural world but don't worry - you don't need to be an expert! Training will be given, so come with a willingness to learn. A driving licence and your own car may be necessary, as will a reasonable level of fitness.
