The RSPB are looking for a Visitor Experience Officer to join the team at one of our flagship nature reserves - Arne in Dorset.

You'll contribute to the planning and day to day running of the visitor experience offer including assisting with planning and delivering an exciting programme of events for wide-ranging audiences, encouraging engagement, and footfall to the reserve, through promotional activities, including social media, as well as working with a large, inspirational team of volunteers and staff all driven to help save nature.
