Job Description

Do you enjoy talking to people? Do you have excellent communication skills? Are you passionate about nature?

‘Fun, challenging, requires resilience, great colleagues.’ Indeed Review, April 2020

We have a fantastic opportunity for someone to join the team as a Wildlife Fundraiser. You will be based at RSPB Frampton Marsh, where you will set up an attractive fundraising stand and spend the day actively engaging with members of the public. The aim is to inspire people to become lifelong members, in this exciting and rewarding role.

This is a seasonal fixed-term post for six months. We reserve the right to extend or make this post permanent at any time. Weekday or weekend working options are available. Three days per week. Working from 10 am to 3 pm.

If you don’t have fundraising experience… don’t worry; full training will be provided! so apply today!

What do current employees say about this fantastic position?

‘Securing a membership is always a great feeling that stays with you. Being able to talk about things you are passionate about and learn a lot about wildlife is a real plus.’ - Membership Fundraiser - Current Employee.

What’s in it for you?

Join a team making a real difference and inspiring people to save nature! You will be working in a rewarding role where you can draw on your passions and interests.

You will receive the following:

  • A contract that suits you
  • A set salary, rather than working to commission
  • An annual volunteer day to spend with whichever charity you choose
  • 34 days’ annual leave (including 8 bank holidays (pro-rata))
  • Full training and comprehensive induction
  • Career progression opportunities within Europe's largest conservation charity, and up to 4 weeks’ sabbatical opportunities for every 5 years of service

About You

You don’t have to have fundraising experience. You don’t even need to know much about wildlife or conservation, due to our thorough induction programme.

You need a passion for saving nature, an engaging personality, and the ability to tell a good story and communicate confidently. This is a rewarding and enjoyable role, where the only requirement is to engage and inspire!

You may have worked in other areas where you have had to build face-to-face relationships such as hospitality, customer service, sales, sustainability, conservation, campaigning, income generation, business development, retail or in a volunteering capacity. However, it is your skills we are interested in rather than your work experience, as you will receive fantastic training and ongoing support as you start your career.

The FlexScore® is the result of a rigorous 2-step verification of a company’s flexibility

First we assess the flexibility options RSPB provides and then we anonymously survey a statistically significant proportion of their employees to make sure RSPB is as flexible as they say they are. Our assessment is based on the six key elements of flexibility: location, hours, autonomy, benefits, role modelling and work-life balance.

We ask the hard questions so you don’t have to.
