Could you help us with our membership pilot?
Members are the lifeblood of the Woodland Trust, so far donations from membership have helped us plant 38,078,206 trees across the United Kingdom, save 550 woods from threats of development and restore 22,856 hectares of ancient woodland.
We are seeking to set up a team of volunteers to support our Membership Development Staff at events in their local area. This will initially be on a six month pilot basis in and around Newcastle, Leeds and Birmingham.
As a volunteer in this role you will be utilising your communication and people skills whilst working as part of a team of volunteers and Woodland Trust staff, aiming to engage visitors, deepen their awareness of the Trust’s work, and to provide information about the opportunities available to those interested in supporting our work. The role could include engaging families and children in craft activities such as, building basic bug hotels and badge making. You will also need to help set up and take down stands, unpack and pack equipment and generally be “hands on” in helping out. All resources and activities will be provided.
This is a great new pilot role and we’d love you to get involved if you are based in or around the Newcastle, Leeds or Birmingham areas. You will be provided with regular support, information and training to help you succeed in this role.
If you’d like to read more about this role you can see the full task outline and let us know you are interested by visiting the website here. Please do forward this on to family and friends who you think might be interested. We are initially looking for 3-4 volunteers in each area.
