Vacancy type:
Office and administration, Inspiring young people

What we're looking for

We need your enthusiasm, inspiration and fresh ideas to help us look after Shetland's wild places and protect our environment. We need you to help us persuade others to care about nature as much as you do!

The skills you need

Must have enthusiasm, energy, ideas, a sense of fun and a love for nature! Bird and other wildlife ID skills would be great but not essential as you will have an opportunity to learn as we go along.

Your time

You can take part in as much or as little as you are able. We will try to spread activities out and meet up monthly. We will aim to have a day of action during each school holiday and some term-time weekends.
School holidays and weekends

What's in it for you?

A chance to share your love and enthusiasm for nature with likeminded folk and make new friends. A chance to join RSPB Shetland staff to learn about the work we do and help us to look after Shetland's special and endangered wildlife. A chance to build your CV, develop a career in nature conservation and/or gain volunteering experience for various youth awards. A chance to make a difference.
