Do you want to make a positive impact to our natural world each and every day? Are you a good storyteller with a love for the outdoors? Then this could be the perfect job for you!

What’s the role about?

Our Membership Fundraisers are the ambassadors for the RSPB; travelling to different venues on most days in their company van, where they set up attractive fundraising stands and spend the day actively engaging with members of the public.

Every day our Membership Fundraisers are playing a vital role in our efforts to help give nature the home it deserves. They do this by having engaging conversations with people about our conservation work, educating the public about how they can help wildlife from home, and inspiring people of all ages to become lifelong members of the RSPB so that we can make a difference to our natural world.
