Head of Digital Products
Reference number: tTHbV-10
Location: Sandy, Bedfordshire

Salary starting at: £39,970 to £46,632 per annum
Hours: Full time
Contract: Permanent

Your role in saving nature:
The RSPB's digital estate is vital to our mission to give nature a home - from rallying people together to speak up for nature, to inspiring a love of wildlife, to raising the income that pays for our conservation work in the UK and around the world.

As the RSPB's Head of Digital Products, you'll lead a team of the RSPB's best and brightest digital strategists - the folks who develop our website, email campaigns, digital marketing, social media and intranet. You'll be hungry to find new ways to use digital platforms to meet the RSPB's goals.

There'll be fundraising targets to hit. There'll be budgets to stay within. There'll be integrated marketing campaigns to deliver across multiple platforms. There'll be relationships to build and fascinating challenges to rise to.

As a skilled communicator, negotiator and influencer, you'll be proactive in seeking out opportunities to develop yourself and your team. You'll talk persuasively with everyone from internal colleagues to politicians, journalists and people from other organisations.

Above all else, you'll be an advocate for saving nature. Nature's in big trouble - the climate crisis and loss of habitat are pushing some of our best loved species towards extinction. We won't let nature fall silent. This role is your chance to make real change possible. What do you say?

Where you'll be working:
You'll be working at the RSPB Headquarters in Sandy, Bedfordshire - imagine a campus of more than 500 passionate, fascinating people, set in the middle of a nature reserve. There's a forest to explore, and a heath. Plus, the staff restaurant serves amazing fish and chips every Friday.

The RSPB is a team of more than 1,000 staff and 8,000 volunteers, all working to give nature a home, in the UK and around the world, from the heathlands of Dorset to the rainforests of Sierra Leone. You'll join a group of passionate research scientists, marketers, policy advisors, creatives, ecologists, communicators and educators. Are you with us?
