We've been successful because we've always adapted. We've never stood still. We have evolved . . .

The role will also involve being our lead investigations manager for incidents involving employees and volunteers that may breach our policies and procedures.

You will be equally happy working on strategy with senior leaders as you are investigating incidents, establishing the facts and working within our policies and procedures to establish the appropriate actions. You won't be afraid to challenge the status quo and suggest ways of improving safeguarding practice, policies and procedures for the organisation. Always with the aim of ensuring the RSPB is a safe place for employees, volunteers, our supporters and the public however they are interacting with us.

If you are the kind of person who is passionate about making a difference in your work both for people and nature, then we'd love to hear from you
