Description

Are you enthusiastic about walking? Are you passionate about protecting the places we love to walk in? Do you enjoy meeting new people?

Then join us as a Ramblers local organiser - our new volunteer campaigners.

You could get involved with our national campaigns, such as Pathwatch, or take action on an issue affecting walkers locally.

You can make the role what you want it to be, but some of the things you could get involved in include:
1. Building relationships with local decision makers - by holding events and meetings with, for example, MPs, local authorities, businesses, private individuals and organisations etc - to make the case for Ramblers’ campaigns.
2. Engaging with other walkers to build support for campaigns, to raise their awareness of and enthusiasm and support for a country designed for walking, for example through gaining media coverage, hosting stalls or fundraising.
3. Keeping an eye on what’s happening locally to inform Ramblers’ campaigns, for example by speaking to Ramblers’ groups and walkers and performing desk research to find out about key local authority meetings etc.
4. Promoting Ramblers' campaigns locally and identifying and recruiting local people who are interested in becoming more involved with Ramblers’ campaigns at a less intensive pace e.g. attending a meeting or signing petitions but are not able to commit time to an in-depth role.

You’ll get…
- A sense of satisfaction knowing that what you’re doing will play a vital part in protecting the places you love to walk.
- Relevant training for the role e.g. fundraising, using social media.
- Ongoing support from staff and peers, as a valuable member of a professional team.
- Insight into the work of a well-established charity.
- A reference for future volunteering/employment.
- Expenses for travel and other reasonable costs.

  • Teamwork
  • Problem solving/Creativity
  • Planning/Organising
