What we're looking for

Local Groups can benefit from using a Facebook page to grow support for and encourage active participation in group activities as well wider RSPB work. We need a dedicated volunteer to manage the Facebook page so that it is regularly updated and activity on the page frequently monitored. You will respond to messages in a timely fashion and act as an ambassador for the RSPB. We have a code of practice for using Facebook which we expect you to follow and should help with the management of the page. It is important to represent the RSPB's views and to align with national work. You will work to a social media plan/calendar to ensure there are regular relevant posts on the page. We want you to think about growing support and reaching new audiences. You can do this by linking with local like minded partners, such as local wildlife charities pages. Your Facebook page will be one of many RSPB pages. It is important to pull content from the 'Love Nature' page and other regional pages to add to the vibrant active network of RSPB online presence. We want you to get in touch with our social media team if you are unsure about a particular post to share or if there is significant negative posts/messages on the page.

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.
