Wildlife Fundraisers



Nature is in crisis, and we need your help! Join us at Europe’s largest nature conservation
charity and make a real difference as a Wildlife Fundraiser!

Are you looking for an exciting opportunity that allows you to integrate your passion for
nature with your exceptional communication skills? Join us at Europe’s largest nature
conservation charity and make a real difference as a Wildlife Fundraiser!

About the role

Each day you will travel to different venues, set up an attractive fundraising stand, and spend
the day actively engaging with members of the public, spreading awareness about our
conservation efforts and generating new RSPB memberships via direct debits.

Don’t worry if you’re not a wildlife expert yet – we provide comprehensive training to equip
you with all the knowledge you need. Plus, you’ll enjoy the added perk of a company van, with
fuel and parking costs paid for.

What’s even better? You’ll have the flexibility to choose a contract between 3 to 5 days per
week, and enjoy the stability of a set salary, rather than working on commission. With 34 days
of annual leave (including bank holidays) and opportunities for sabbaticals, we value your
work-life balance and well-being.

We are currently advertising for Fundraisers in the below locations:

West Sussex   
West Kent (Tonbridge)   
North Essex (Colchester)

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.’

‘Fun, challenging, requires resilience, great colleagues.’ 

But it’s not just about the benefits – it’s about the impact you’ll make. Join a team that’s
dedicated to preserving nature and inspiring others to do the same. Your role will be pivotal
in driving positive change, and you’ll have the support of a diverse and inclusive community
every step of the way.
