  5. Hello,

    In what part of the country would we need to be available for the day on the 14th August?

    Many thanks,

    1. Hi Jasmine,

      Thank you for getting in touch.
      You would need to be able to get to Sandy, fairly central and easily accessible from London. Travel arrangements would be sorted closer to the time and of course – on the basis that the applicant has been accepted for interview.
      If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch: emma.burt@rspb.org.uk

  6. Hello my name is Gemma,
    I am a designer maker /artist and I’m very passionate about art, painting, crafting, photography and gardening. I have an absolute love of nature and wildlife. I enjoy combining the artistic side of my hobbies together with causes for nature. Currently I am working with my children’s primary school, creating a vegetable patch, with sensory elements and also a mini wild meadow. I want to introduce the children to the delights of home grown food and also promote the importance of providing a safe haven for our declining bees and butterflies. I am planning on creating butterfly sculptures, with the children from upcycled plastic, as part of our global goals. I am also writing and illustrating a book with and for my two children aged 6 and 4 about the colourful journey and transformation of our garden, from grey bare pavement to a colourful, happy environment of flowers for butterflies, bees and wildlife. It’s about our adventures and journeys through art, expression and gardening, growing flowers for wildlife. We are also huge fans of 30 days of wild and produce and arty creation each year for our month of wildness. I would be absolutely over the moon to be involved in something that I feel passionately about like this project .
