The position entails overseeing the distribution of physical resources to the team in a timely manner and ensuring that support systems run smoothly, communicating any changes to working processes effectively. This could be a desirable secondment opportunity.

What are the roles about?
Membership is crucial to the future of the RSPB, and the Face-to-Face Membership Logistics Officers are essential to ensure our public-facing staff have everything they need to inspire the public.

The roles demand a commitment to managing a diverse and varied daily workload, supporting the F2F team to deliver its targets and building excellent relationships across the organisation. If you have a high level of attention to detail, a desire to constantly review and improve processes, and excellent communication skills, then we want to hear from you!
