Nature is in big trouble and we need your help! 
 
The UK is among the most nature-depleted countries in the world. We now have a moral obligation to save nature and this is a view shared by the millions of supporters of conservation organisations across the UK. From now until 2030 we have some ambitious plans and targets - working together with our community of members and partners to collectively change the fate of nature, building upon our land ownership to help give nature a home. 

About the RSPB 

The RSPB is the largest nature conservation charity in the UK, consistently delivering successful conservation, forging powerful new partnerships with other organisations, and inspiring others to stand up and give nature the home it deserves. Around a third of the RSPB's funding comes from memberships, which allow us to continue all of our fantastic work - protecting and restoring the wild places nature depends on. 
 
About the role: 
 
The role involves traveling around your local area, setting up a stand, and engaging with members of the public. Whilst your primary role would be to recruit new members, you are also there to inspire, educate, and enthuse the public with a real passion for nature.

This role would also benefit anyone who is looking to develop their sales and marketing skills and/or looking to develop a career in wildlife and conservation.
