Communications volunteers needed

By Weald to Waves - 29 September 2023

We are looking for two Digital Communications Volunteers to support us with community engagement and public reporting.

Whether you are an experienced comms manager with time to contribute, or a new blogger looking for a safe space to improve your skills, we want to hear from you!

You will get a great introduction to the complexity and excitement of one of the UK's most ambitious nature recovery initiatives and build networks with organisations and groups across Sussex.

The role may involve supporting the team with a range of weekly, monthly or quarterly communications tasks including:

Community Emails: Regularly checking and monitor the project's busy inbox and responding to general enquiries or directing more specific or technical enquiries to the appropriate team members.

Social Media: Collaborate with the team to create content and publish updates on the project through our social media channels.

Sites and news: Supporting with the creation of articles and content for our website and quarterly newsletter, as well as a chance to engage with journalists and film-makers.

If you are a journalist, illustrator, photographer, animator, or podcast creator and would like to contribute your incredible professional skills to the project on occasion, we would love to hear from you too!

As a volunteer, you choose where you work and the hours you contribute to our project. Ideally, we are looking for those keen to work with us regularly over the year ahead. We are a hybrid team with limited office space but there will be opportunities to work together in person at Knepp for those interested and able to do so. We host regular walks and events and there will be plenty of unique experiences for active volunteers at Knepp and along the corridor.

You do not have to be based in Sussex but please note that only local expenses can be covered.

If you are interested in this volunteer role, get in touch with Alex, our Project Officer, on alex@wealdtowaves.co.uk. CVs are not necessary but we'd love to hear about you and your experience in an email.

Thank you for your interest!
