  • The interview process for a Membership Fundraiser role is comprised of the following three stages:

    Telephone Interview – This will be a quick Q&A about the role, your work experiences, and your motivations to be an RSPB Fundraiser. It will take around 15- 20 minutes, and will be conducted by Dan or Stee.


    Skype interview – Q&A with the relevant Area Manager, followed by a short collaborative task, where together you craft an RSPB fundraising conversation format for use in the Practical Element. This interview will take around an hour and a half.


    Practical Element – You meet the Area Manager face-to-face at a site where a fundraiser is currently working, and you get to see the job in full and gain insight from someone that is actually in the role. We will ask you to use your pre-prepared fundraising conversation to engage with the public to assess your confidence level regarding stopping and talking with them. This is also an opportunity for you to see if the role is for you!

  • Depends on who is interviewing, each manager hires their own staff. HR do very little on the recruitment.

  • Feedback regarding your own performance is delivered by your direct line manager. With regular one to one meetings and the accessibility of management at this level, there are plenty of opportunities to discuss and plan. There are regular emails about regional and national performance from management further up the ladder.
    If I had one criticism, it would be that comms are not always great across the organisation, but it is something of which they are aware and are working on.

  • One of the most difficult things about the role is having the resilience to continue to approach members of the public throughout the day with the same energy and enthusiasm as the first interaction. What really helps with this is knowing where donations are going, remembering all of the good work that the RSPB is doing to give nature a home, and using the cause as motivation!

  • Of course! In terms of the Fundraising and Communications directorate which you would be a part of, there is a progression from Membership Fundraiser > Senior Fundraiser > Area Manager > Operations Manager > General Manager, as well as regular vacancies elsewhere within the organisation (Conservation Science, Communications, HQ, etc). We also offer sabbatical opportunities for those interested in different areas of the organisation.
