Publicity Officer Vacancy

A vacancy has arisen for the post of Publicity Officer for the Society. This is a key officer role and a great opportunity to become involved with the running of Cornwall Birds, promoting it to a wide audience.

  • Update the website with relevant society news as well as requests from other organizations that are relevant to our members.
  • Keep our social media pages and groups up to date with topical posts and where possible recruit volunteers to assist with this task.
