About SWWFL

South West Wildlife Fundraising Limited (SWWFL) was created by seven Wildlife Trusts in 2013, and is now owned by eight Wildlife Trusts to help secure regular financial support through memberships. Regular membership income is vital for these charities – now more than ever – to ensure that they continue to protect our threatened natural environments and wildlife. 

SWWFL’s eight owning Wildlife Trusts are Avon, Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Hampshire & Isle of Wight, Somerset, Wiltshire and Worcestershire Wildlife Trusts. All of our owning Wildlife Trusts are members of the Fundraising Regulator.

Work for SWWFL

Looking for a job that is flexible, meaningful and part of a family-feeling company? Looking to give something back and encourage people to protect our natural world? We are always on the lookout for membership recruiters, and also have occasional vacancies within our Exeter-based head office – click below to find out about more.

Membership recruitment

Our membership recruiters work at pre-booked venues such as retail stores, leisure and tourism sites and farmers markets, as well as seasonal events such as county shows, flower shows and food festivals across our eight counties. Our membership recruiters engage members of the public about the work of their local Wildlife Trust with the aim of securing a regular membership encompassing a monthly donation by Direct Debit.

Each membership recruiter is provided with full Wildlife Trust-branded kit, clothing and information, as well as thorough induction and follow-up training. We support our membership recruiters to be the best they can.

Professional standards

We are a member of the Institute of Fundraising and work to very high standards of professional conduct. Our membership recruiters are well-liked and respected by our venues, events and members of the public.
