What we're looking for
Our work parties are a fantastic example of volunteer team work, passion and diversity. Everyone has a part to play and everyone loves being a part of it. We need someone to lead the team and deliver fantastic practical conservation! We need you to facilitate the smooth running of our work party programme and to ensure all work is done in a timely and safe manor. This involves leading the team of work party volunteers onto the reserve and taking responsibility for improving the site, after guidance and instructions from the site manager and assistant warden. This support will be offered to you with weekly conversations with the site manager and/or assistant warden to receive the weeks 'jobs'. It is then your responsibility to lead and plan the work party day to ensure the work is done effectively and in a safe environmentally friendly way. You will need to follow RSPB procedures for escalating issues and problems back to the site manager and assistant warden. In addition, you'll need to record on paper maps the work completed, so that it can be uploaded to our recording system and report back to the reserve team after each work party to inform them of progress and outstanding work.
