The successful candidate does not necessarily need sales experience as a passion for nature and the ability to inspire others to become a member is key; members join us because they want to help to Protect Wildlife where they live for now and for the future generations.

Our Vision is for Birmingham and the Black Country to have more wildlife, more wild places and more people with a strong connection to the natural world. We manage our own nature reserves to a high standard and work in partnership with others to create and enhance wildlife habitats locally. As lead partner of the Birmingham and Black Country Nature Improvement Area since 2012 the Wildlife Trust has worked with our many partners and more than 2,000 volunteers to improve over 100 sites for people and wildlife. Our approach of working with local community groups in areas of public open space has seen over 40 new meadows created, 103 hectares of woodland enhanced and many kilometres of watercourse restored.

Our engagement team works across the area to connect people with nature delivering a wide ranging programme of events and activities that inspire people of all ages about the natural world.

Our five year strategic goals are:

1. Space for nature is protected, restored, created and valued.
2. Everyone is connected to nature.
3. The natural environment is at the heart of planning, policy- and decision-making.
4. We are an effective organisation.

Purpose of Post
We are looking for a Door-to-Door Membership Recruiter to promote wild places within  Birmingham and the Black Country, raise the profile of The Trust and grow our supporter base by recruiting new members in the area.

The Trust currently has over 3000 memberships whose contributions help to fund the Trust’s work. This post is crucial in supporting our plans for membership growth and long-term retention. 

The successful candidate will have a polite, professional and approachable nature helping to ensure that our members feel that we are an organisation worthy of their support so they remain long term supporters, pledging as much as they can.

The successful candidate does not necessarily need sales experience as a passion for nature and the ability to inspire others to become a member is key; members join us because they want to help to Protect Wildlife where they live for now and for the future generations. 

This role may suit a retired profession or those with flexible availability as the successful candidate will be able to agree their own hours. Hours of work will typically be within the early evening for Door-to-Door recruitment with occasional face-to-face recruitment at other times. 

The role requires approaching prospective members on a door-to-door basis therefore the successful candidate will need to be confident working alone and be able to handle rejection as well as success. 

This is a fantastic opportunity to join our growing team of people passionately committed to protecting the natural environment of Birmingham and the Black Country and connecting people with nature.
