visitor experience assistant

Monday 8 June 2015
Vacancy type:
Helping visitors at our reserves
Rathlin Island

What we're looking for

We want people coming into our Centre to be met with a smile. You will actively provide a warm welcome for all visitors, thank members for their support and ensure that visitors needs are understood and met to the best of our ability. RSPB membership really is the lifeblood of the Society and underpins every single thing we do. It helps us fund nature conservation work here and across the UK - not only the ongoing land management of our reserves but also by creating and enhancing magnificent wild spaces for nature and people to enjoy. It is therefore important that you can inspire people about the work we do and warm them up to the idea of membership.

The skills you need

You'll need to have the confidence to strike up conversations with strangers, a desire to help, an enthusiasm for wildlife and conservation, but most important of all, you'll need a friendly demeanour and a ready smile!

Your time

2 days a month, or more if available
summer season

What's in it for you?

This role will suit someone who loves to meet and talk to visitors and who would gain satisfaction from passing on their passion about wildlife. It's also a great opportunity to work at a unique wildlife reserve learning more about nature, birds and wildlife whilst making a real difference to the work of the RSPB.
