We are looking for enthusiastic and driven people to join our team of regional Membership Fundraisers working at local venues and events. The aim of the role is to encourage people to join their local Wildlife Trust and support the vital work they do by way of a monthly direct debit.

  • You must have a valid driving licence and access to a car/van - transportation of equipment and materials is essential.
  • Weekend working required.
  • Will include outdoor work using a gazebo and other equipment.
As a part-time recruiter I love the flexibility the role offers. Visiting different places and talking to different people about wildlife is really enjoyable and no two days are the same. I’m proud to be promoting the essential work the Trust does.

Our Membership Recruiters work independently at venues (pre-booked by our in-house team). Venues typically include local shops, farmer’s markets, garden centres, nature reserves and county shows/events. Our fundraising activities have been adapted to be Covid-safe with additional materials and health and safety processes in place.

If you have fundraising/sales experience, an outgoing personality and an interest in nature and your local environment then we would love to hear from you. This is an excellent opportunity to bring your experience to a position where you can contribute directly to cause that you are passionate about.
