What's in it for you?

Help bring our group in to the 21st century! This role will suit someone in the Portsmouth area who can see the value in using technology to promote the work of the RSPB. You love helping people enjoy wildlife, so you will enjoy using your Facebook page to find local people who might want to support and possible attend meetings. Because you will be linked in with other RSPB pages, you will get to learn about the wider work of the RSPB on a national and regional level, as well as building new relationships with local wildlife interest groups.
