Marketing & Social Media Volunteer



Role Description

Our office team are in need of a creative individual with excellent social media and written communication skills. This role involves a mixture of content creation (filming, photographing, recording, drafting, editing), scheduling (Hootsuite and MailChimp) and administration. The volunteer will also support the Administration Lead with monitoring inboxes across various social media platforms, assist with technical support for online course content, draft blog posts, engage with our guests and followers to gather more content and carry out other marketing and social media tasks as needed.

Who Is It For?

This role is ideally suited for someone who wants a predominantly office-based role, who is comfortable engaging with people to create new content, who is creative and has fresh ideas, and who has the relevant social media / photography / platform skills.

The Team

The Office Team are a friendly, but hard-working bunch, who like to have peace and quiet to get their work done, but who also love a tea break (and maybe some chocolate too!) Most of the team are part-time, so they are rarely all in the office at the same time, but there is a regular rhythm to the week with some days being much busier than others.

Average Shift Pattern

9am to 5pm Tuesday to Friday (with occasional evening shifts if technical support needed for a Zoom course)
