Volunteer Recruitment Officer

An exciting opportunity has arisen to recruit a Volunteer Recruitment Officer to RSPB Midlands. We are looking to see how we can develop and diversify our volunteer workforce, and if so how we adopt best practice in volunteer recruitment. The post is about delving into those questions, experimenting, being creative; identifying new ways to recruit volunteers, from new places and into new roles and then making it happen.

You will have excellent communication skills, love working with new people, have worked as a volunteer or with and for volunteers, and you will really appreciate the importance that volunteers hold for the future of our organisation. You might have experience in recruitment,  HR or working for a charity or community organisation.

If successful you will not be alone;  as part of a close team you will work alongside our Volunteer Development Officer and have access to all the different areas of expertise that makes up RSPB Midlands.  For the forward-thinking, this role is a unique development opportunity providing training and insight into the conservation, volunteering and charity sectors.  If you don’t know the difference between a ‘hedge’ and a ‘house’ sparrow it’s OK, you will soon.  Above all, you will be representing the RSPB and volunteering, and your passion and enthusiasm will shine through in all aspects of your work; you will make a difference.

We particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates, disabled people and under 25s who are currently underrepresented as RSPB employees. We are open to discussion of any adjustments you may need to achieve your full potential.
