Could you use your direct sales skills and life experience to encourage people to support Devon Wildlife Trust (DWT) and its fantastic conservation work by becoming a member? DWT is the biggest local wildlife charity, looking after over 40 amazing nature reserves and, with 6 out 10 UK species are under threat, we need more members than ever to enable us to protect threatened local wildlife. This role is ideal for someone who enjoys working under their own initiative (with support) and the freedom to make a difference for a great cause. In our staff survey our Membership Recruiters (MRs) commented on the varied working environment, flexibility, being part of a friendly and supportive team and helping raise money for an amazing local charity. If this appeals to you, we’d love to have a chat.

  • Average earnings are over £20 per hr. MRs are eligible to accrue uncapped commission from day 1. There is also a monthly bonus scheme. We also offer travel expenses and a pension scheme. You will receive an excellent training programme along with ongoing support.
  • We work at a wide variety of pre-booked venues and events including festivals, garden centres, farmers markets and retail stores, using our branded information display to engage with members of the public. There is no street fundraising or cash collecting involved in this role.
  • We’re looking for regular weekly working, typically from 2 - 4 days, which should include a minimum of 1 weekend day. This is a permanent, part time job (seasonal roles are also available) with South West Wildlife Fundraising (SWWFL). SWWFL is wholly owned by 8 Wildlife Trust Charities.
Do you have:
  • Previous direct sales or promotions experience?
  • An optimistic outlook, a big smile and the desire to make a real difference?
  • Confidence and resilience?
  • Access to a car?

If so, please send your CV and a short, eye-catching covering note indicating why you’re suitable to: Giles Herbert, Membership Sales Manager gherbert@swwfl.co.uk and Jo Huxtable recruitment@swwfl.co.uk
