Visitor Experience Manager

Reference number: A6880319

Location: Dorset

The RSPB are looking for an enthusiastic and inspirational person to lead our visitor experience at the Wild Weymouth Discovery Centre, the gateway to our Weymouth Wetlands nature reserves in Dorset. Radipole Lake and Lodmoor nature reserves sit in the middle of Weymouth and are home to some amazing wildlife. They have the potential to engage many people about the important conservation work that the RSPB delivers both locally and nationally. Most importantly, this will inspire people to help us protect nature.

You'd be leading a passionate team of staff and volunteers to deliver a great visitor experience and gain support from visitors. You'll also be responsible for developing an exciting programme of events for wide-ranging audiences, plus seeking to make links with local communities, schools and local authorities to reach even more people and tell our conservation stories.

Experience in membership recruitment, planning and delivering events, managing a team of people and publicity are all essential for this role, as is a passion for nature and the ability to share that enthusiasm. The role involves working to targets and will involve weekend working and bank holidays.

This is a brilliant opportunity for someone to have a big positive impact on the RSPB's conservation work. You'll get to work at two fantastic urban nature reserves which are home to iconic species such as Marsh Harriers, Bitterns and Otters as well as working alongside an inspirational team all driven to help save nature.

This role is covered by the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act. You will be asked to declare unspent convictions and cautions at offer of employment stage.
