Door-to-Door Membership Recruiter

Purpose of the Post

We have exciting and ambitious plans to develop The Wildlife Trust for Birmingham and the Black Country to help wildlife and engage more people with nature.

The Trust currently has over 3000 memberships whose contributions help to fund the Trust’s work.  This post is crucial in supporting our plans for membership growth and long-term retention.   The Door-to-Door Membership Recruiter’s role is to promote wild places within Birmingham and the Black Country, raise the profile of The Trust and grow our supporter base by recruiting new members in the area.

The successful candidate will have a polite, professional and approachable nature helping to ensure that our members feel that we are an organisation worthy of their support so they remain long term supporters, pledging as much as they can.

The role gives the successful candidate flexibility to agree their hours of work, and develop an individual sales technique provided that membership recruitment targets are met.  Hours of work will typically be within the early evening for Door-to-Door recruitment with occasional face-to-face recruitment at other times.

This is an excellent opportunity to join our growing team of people passionately committed to protecting the natural environment of Birmingham and the Black Country and connecting people with nature.
