What we're looking for
Could you inform and enthuse people of all ages and backgrounds about RSPB sites in the Dearne Valley and what we are doing to help people and wildlife? RSPB Old Moor is a wildlife reserve between Rotherham and Barnsley, within easy reach of local communities. A major outcome of recently secured National Lottery Heritage funding is to make RSPB Old Moor and our other sites in the Dearne Valley even better for our wildlife and visitors over the next three years and ongoing into the future. We're looking for people to: connect and maintain links with people in the local community deliver outreach events and talks about what is happening at our Dearne Valley reserves Spread the word of our projects and upcoming events get people of all ages excited about the wildlife around them and how they can take action to protect it raise the profile of the RSPB within local communities. You would be part of a team of volunteers in this role. Time commitment in this role would be flexible to be available when and where community groups are meeting, as opportunities arise, sometimes in evenings or at weekends. Obviously Covid-19 is affecting the delivery of our National Lottery Heritage project, but we are keen to recruit volunteers to that when we can commence community outreach we are ready to go. There may also be opportunities for engagement via video or social media whilst events are still prohibited.
