Marketing and Communications Volunteer

Location: Bradbury House, Wheler Road

Are you always scrolling through Instagram? Checking for updates on Facebook? Trawling trough blogs looking for inspiration? Why not do all of that, but for a good cause!? Become a Comms and Marketing volunteer and help Red Cross shops in your area make their mark on social media! We need your help to talk about the great work that we do in our shops, creating content to be shared both within the organisation, and with the rest of the world.

Who are we?
The British Red Cross helps millions of people in the UK and around the world prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies, disasters and conflicts. We are part of the global Red Cross and Red Crescent humanitarian network. With 340 shops across the UK, we raise vital funds and represent the British Red Cross on the high street and in the local community. Volunteering for a few hours per week can make a huge difference.

Who are you?
If you are looking to join our wonderful team, we hope that you are:

  • An enthusiastic team player who can work unsupervised when necessary.
  • An inquisitive individual who is keen to learn about our shops, our work and our customers - and are open to travelling around to find out more!
  • A passionate communicator who loves blogging, social media and has strong verbal and written style.
  • A snappy photographer with a passion for sustainable fashion and recycling.

What could you do?
As a marketing and comms volunteer, we might ask you to:
  • Use your knowledge and expertise in social media and marketing to help the British Red Cross gain further reach and support.
  • Create fun and engaging content for the Facebook pages of the shops in your area.
  • Support local and area wide promotions.
  • Visit shops and attend inspiring events, documenting the interesting stories and fascinating ideas you find.
