Every week, we organise practical work groups to carry out various habitat management and estate work around the RSPB site. We need your help to keep on top of essential reserve management and one-off tasks across a variety of beautiful habitats.
Typical tasks include fencing repairs, scrub removal, vegetation management, invasive species removal, ditch clearing and lots more!
All tasks are vital for conservation of important wildlife and habitats - you would be directly contributing to the protection of our countryside - and for retaining good access to, and around the site.
An opportunity to help with habitat management, become part of a small, friendly team and learn about the running of the site, plus be involved with one of the RSPB's most exciting sites. You'll get a chance to enjoy the place, learn more about our plans and really get your hands dirty! You'll also pick up or be able to share skills and techniques.
This is an excellent chance to make a genuine contribution to wildlife conservation. You will gain a valuable insight into the workings of Europe's largest conservation charity.
Hi, this is a great opportunity to use your IT and marketing skills. We currently use wordpress, facebook and mailchimp to advertise our stalls and work. We have a marketing strategy in place and we really need help delivering it. As an organisation, we don’t have the skills to take our IT and marketing strategy any further, so we would be looking for you to have a really hands on approach to taking it forward with guidance from current members in terms of material to use.
We are thinking you are currently a student on a digital marketing course looking for hands on experience or maybe you work, or have worked, in that field and have time to spare. The commitment would be a couple of hours a week throughout the year.
You will learn lots about allotments, growing food locally and cooking with seasonal, locally grown produce. We are a friendly bunch of people who are enthusiastic about encouraging people to eat more fruit and veg, to grow their own, to reduce food miles and to reduce food waste from allotment sites.
For further details please contact Cath Pilley at email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We have 4 local groups based in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Tayside and Grampian. Volunteers can join these groups and carry out tasks such as drystane dyking, footpath construction, woodland management and fencing, and to receive training in these.
Our District Volunteers support local private gardens to open for charity. This is a fun and varied role for anyone who loves gardens.
District Volunteers work closely with garden owners to make sure that their opening is a success by helping with publicity, signage, admissions, refreshments, car parking and occasionally even some last-minute gardening! It is a very varied role that enables you to use and develop skills such as event management, communication, working with the general public and horticulture. Our volunteers are essential to the work that we do and our district teams are the lynch pin in our ability to raise nearly £400,000 for charity each year.
