All the training necessary and background information will be provided and since you'll be giving up your time, it's only fair that we offer to re-imburse your travel expenses (up to 25 miles). The RSPB speaks out for birds and wildlife, tackling the problems that threaten our environment. We rely upon memberships and donations to fund our work. By volunteering your time and skills, you could make a real difference to the work of the RSPB. Nature is amazing – help us keep it that way. We welcome volunteers of all ages in the RSPB; however for this particular role, we do not have the staffing capacity to accommodate volunteers under the age of 18. This is due to not being able to meet the safeguarding requirements set out in the RSPB Safeguarding policy. Do keep an eye on the RSPB volunteer pages for any future vacancies'.
