What we're looking for
RSPB local groups are community based groups, run entirely by volunteers, that promote the aims and objectives of the RSPB in the local community. They offer RSPB members and the public the opportunity to become involved in, learn about and assist the organisation in its work to save nature. They run events and activities like indoor talks and outdoor walks/wildlife watching trips. They also fundraise and campaign for the RSPB and attend local community events to further enthuse and inspire people to support the RSPB. Tonbridge local group needs someone to support our campaign work we cannot stress enough what a huge difference signatures on petitions, pledge cards etc, really does make. Such a groundswell of support gives us a very loud voice when it comes to lobbying for lasting change for birds, wildlife and the environment. You will: maintain awareness of issues on which the RSPB is campaigning, and local developments affecting nature. each month, recommend an issue where support by the local group could be effective. co-ordinate this support, for example by explaining issues and proposed actions at indoor meetings, organising members to attend RSPB lobbies, writing summaries for the group newsletter or monthly email. liaise with RSPB campaign co-ordinators where appropriate.
