About this organisation

Why we want you:
We have an exciting partnership with London and South East Region (LaSER) Girlguiding which works to connect girls and their leaders to nature, through activities at Girlguiding events.
This project aims to deepen the connection to nature experienced by young people by enabling them to participate in fun, first hand experiences. It also supports leaders to develop the skills and confidence to embed such experiences into their own programmes of activities.

Induction, training and support offered with this opportunity

As an RSPB volunteer you are part of something big – a team of amazing and dedicated people who donate their time, energy, talent and skills to help birds and other wildlife.
Volunteering in this role is fantastic opportunity to be part of a friendly team, meet like-minded people, make new friends, learn new skills or consolidate existing ones that can be applied to a range of industries both within and outside the charity sector.
The RSPB is the largest conservation charity in Europe and by volunteering with us you will gain an insight into the varied work of this active and exciting organisation.
One of the best things about becoming our Volunteer Coordinator is the flexibility of the role. We need someone to volunteer for a minimum of 1 day a week but this could be split into two half days and occasionally undertaken from home (if the necessary equipment is available for use). Of course we'd be thrilled if you were able to commit to more than one day a week.
You will also boost your CV by volunteering with a well known charity - we'd supply you with a reference.
