Are you passionate about Sherwood and the RSPB? Do you want a flexible role that enables you to talk about nature, engage others and represent the RSPB? We are looking for people who can deliver talks to community groups and attend community events to represent Sherwood Forest, and build the support that will preserve our forest for the future.

What will I do?

  • You will attend seek out and attend community events and activities outside of Sherwood Forest to represent the RSPB and pass on our messages.
  • You will be a key part of our important work to give nature a home by showing people the work we do nationally, internationally, and where our communities live and work, and how they can be a part of it.
  • This is a flexible role that may be shared between several people, meaning the time commitment will be variable, and much of your role can be carried out online and from home or community venues.
  • Talks can be during the day or evening, and are generally around 45 minutes.

What’s in it for me?
