What's involved?

Our fundraising membership recruiters represent their local Wildlife Trust with an information stand at pre-booked venues and events, aiming to inspire people to join their local Wildlife Trust and make regular, affordable donations. 

Solo working
Membership recruiters work independently, or sometimes in pairs at large events, supported by a sales team manager and membership sales manager.

Working patterns
This is a permanent role, with people tending to work two to three days a week with at least one of those at the weekend. Zero hours contracts are also available if flexibility is important.  Hours can vary depending on the event but are typically 10am-4pm.

Equipment
Local Wildlife Trust-branded uniform, a range of lightweight stands and marketing materials are provided for setting up engaging displays so a full driving license and access to a vehicle is needed.

Venue bookings
Venues and events are pre-booked by a venue co-ordinator in our central Exeter office dedicated to a local Wildlife Trust area. They manage the membership recruiter diaries, provide set-up details of where to go and what to expect at each venue, and are another friendly point of contact. 

Support
Following a successful application, membership recruiters have an initial induction  held locally which includes a three-day office-based workshop. This is supplemented by two field shadow days with an experienced colleague. Full ongoing support is provided, including regular training.

Team away days are hosted by local Wildlife Trust nature reserves to show how membership makes a difference!
