Wildlife Ambassador Volunteer

Location: Various locations, Yorkshire
Do you have a passion for Wildlife? Are you keen to share your wildlife stories with people you meet? If this sounds like you then our Wildlife Ambassador role would be perfect for you.

As a Wildlife Ambassador your role will be instrumental in assisting our Wildlife Supporter Officers (WSOs). Our Wildlife Supporter Officers are usually the first point of contact for many new members, as they are tasked with engaging with the public to make them aware of Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, our work and encourage them to support us through membership. They work across Yorkshire, from our gateway sites and nature reserves to other events such as large county shows and smaller nature-themed events. You will be assisting the WSOs by attending events with them, and providing support by helping to set up stalls, running interactive activities and talking with members of the public about shared interests in conservation with the aim to promote the charity and its purpose.

We are particularly keen for you to share your wildlife stories with people you meet; it could be anything from your love of puffins and where people may expect to see them, to your knowledge about another particular species or habitat and how we can protect it. Whatever your wildlife passion, you will be helping to spread the word and raise awareness of Yorkshire Wildlife Trust’s goals through telling stories that will inspire people to take action for wildlife.

Closing Date for applications is 9am Thursday 6th May
Interviews: will be held week commencing 17th May 2021
