Position: Wildlife Fundraiser - Carlisle

Ref: JUN20248316

Location: Carlisle

Salary: £24,890.00 - £26,720.00 per annum

Contract: Permanent

Closing Date: Sun, 21st Jul 2024

The Role

Each day you will travel to different venues, set up an attractive fundraising stand, and spend the day actively engaging with members of the public, spreading awareness about our conservation efforts and inspiring individuals to become lifelong members.

Don't worry if you're not a wildlife expert yet - you will be provided with comprehensive training to equip you with all the knowledge you need. Plus, you'll enjoy the added perk of a company van, with fuel and parking costs paid for.

What's even better? You'll have the flexibility to choose a contract between 3 to 5 days per week, and enjoy the stability of a set salary, rather than working on commission. With 34 days of annual leave (including bank holidays) and opportunities for sabbaticals, we value your work-life balance and well-being.

‘Securing a membership is always a great feeling that stays with you. Being able to talk about things you are passionate about and learn a lot about wildlife is a real plus.' Fun, challenging, requires resilience, great colleagues.' - Membership Fundraiser - Current Employee

But it's not just about the benefits - it's about the impact you'll make. Join a team that's dedicated to preserving nature and inspiring others to do the same. Your role will be pivotal in driving positive change, and you'll have the support of a diverse and inclusive community every step of the way.
