Events and activities volunteer

About the opportunity

We are currently looking for a friendly and motivated volunteer to join our team at Sandwell Valley nature reserve. Join us and help us provide to our visitors a memorable and inspiring experience!

What are we looking for?

We need your help to ensure that events run smoothly and that attendees have a great time. You can help us convey the RSPB’s message to a wide audience especially families with children.
RSPB membership really is the lifeblood of the Society and underpins every single thing we do. It helps us fund nature conservation work here and across the UK. It is therefore important that you can inspire people about the work we do and warm them up to the idea of membership.

We have a packed calendar full of events and activities on the reserve, from bat detecting events to wild art days to wildlife friendly gardening events. All events are designed to get people closer to nature and interested in the work of the RSPB. We need event volunteers to help deliver the activities, but also with setting up and packing away afterwards.

Practical Considerations

The skills you need

You’ll need to have the confidence to strike up conversations with strangers, a desire to help, an enthusiasm for wildlife and conservation, but most important of all, you’ll need a friendly demeanour and a ready smile!

Your time

Minimum: 1 day per month
Duration: Ongoing
Period: All year around

What’s in it for you?

This role will suit someone who loves to meet and talk to visitors and who would gain satisfaction from passing on their passion about wildlife. It’s also a great opportunity to make a real difference to the work of the RSPB by encouraging more support.
