What's involved

Our fundraisers inspire people to join their local Wildlife Trust and make a regular, affordable donation. They represent their local Wildlife Trust with an information stand at pre-booked venues and events.

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

Flexible working pattern
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.

Engaging 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. You can also use your creativity to further enhance your stand to inspire people’s interest.

Pre-booked venues and events
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 your other friendly point of contact.
