Job Details

Nature is in crisis, and needs your help! Join Europe's largest nature conservation charity and make a real difference as a Wildlife Fundraiser!

Wildlife Fundraiser - West Sussex
Reference: MAY20241973
Location: West Sussex
Salary:  £24,890.00 - £26,720.00 per annum
Benefits: Pension, Life Assurance, 26 days annual leave

Are you looking for an exciting opportunity that allows you to integrate your passion for nature with your exceptional communication skills? Join them at Europe's largest nature conservation charity and make a real difference as a Wildlife Fundraiser!

About the role

They are specifically looking for individuals who are based in West Sussex that can commute to their Pulborough Brooks and Pagham Harbour reserves, amongst other local destinations.

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 their conservation efforts and generating new memberships via direct debits.

Don't worry if you're not a wildlife expert yet – they provide 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, they value your work-life balance and well-being.

What do current employees say about this role? 

‘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.’

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.

If you are looking for your first role, or a change in industry, they are also offering this position as an apprenticeship.

What they need from you:

  • A passion for conservation;
  • Ability to work to targets;
  • A driver's licence valid for use in the UK;
  • Happy to work 3 out of 4 weekends;
  • Willingness to work outdoors and independently;
  • Fundraising/Sales and Customer Service experience advantageous.

Whether you're from a hospitality, customer service, sales, or volunteering background, they're more interested in your negotiating/storytelling skills and enthusiasm than your previous experience.

If you're ready to embark on an exciting journey and help create a world richer in nature, apply now!
