What we're looking for
Do you have a passion for community? Do you enjoy working collaboratively to achieve great things in your local patch? We'd love you to join us! RSPB Old Moor is a wildlife reserve between Rotherham and Barnsley, within easy reach of local communities. The reserve is a 'visitor haven' for introducing anyone to British wildlife in a safe, fun and accessible environment. A key outcome of our recently secured National Lottery Heritage funding is to make more and deeper connections between the reserves and the surrounding communities. There is a suite of activities and events to engage with individual households but our presence in the community could be greatly enhanced by engaging with groups and community projects. We're after someone to: represent the RSPB within local community forums and community projects. be an advocate for the RSPB and take up opportunities for collaboration within communities around Old Moor to enthuse community members about the RSPB's mission This role will involve travel around the communities local to RSPB Old Moor. Time commitment to the role is flexible and will be reactive to opportunities and demand as they arise. Obviously Covid-19 is affecting the delivery of our National Lottery Heritage project, but we are keen to recruit volunteers so that when we can commence community outreach we are ready to go.
