What we're looking for
Our visitor volunteers work across the visitor centre and the lakeside viewpoint, making a large flexible team whose focus is great customer service, membership and promoting this special nature reserve. Membership income is a vital source of income and underpins everything we do. It is really important that our visitor welcome volunteers promote membership through meaningful conversation to non-members, actively encouraging them to sign up at the reserve. The role will be varied, focussing on providing a great welcome, leading the way and setting the example to other volunteers. As well as working with the regional membership team to cascade best practice and training to other volunteers on site. 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 paces for nature and people to enjoy. It is therefore important that you can inspire people about the work we do, and ask them would they like to support us by becoming a member.
