What we're looking for

We are looking for people to make the public go 'wow' by showing and telling them about the wildlife spectacle around them. People are often unaware of the nature on their very doorstep and blowing their socks off with a close up view and telling them all about it can bring them closer to nature and the RSPB. 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

Essential: A confident and outgoing personality. Happy to make the first move to strike up conversations. Good with all age groups. Willing to learn new skills and be innovative Desirable: Creative Knowledge of common garden wildlife would be useful.

What's in it for you?

The opportunity to work in a small friendly team. Develop people engagement skills whilst inspiring the public about wildlife and nature and make the RSPB more relevant to them. Having the autonomy and responsibility to run activities and presentations. The more people who know about us and support us, the more conservation work we can do. This is a unique chance to work in partnership with us and the Ulster Museum, being part of a team with the museum staff to give the visitors a great experience of both the displays in the Nature Zone and the natural world right outside its windows. The RSPB is an active and exciting conservation charity, the largest in Europe! We can help you gain skills and give you a valuable insight into our work.
