Marketing and Awareness Volunteer

Details Hide[-]

Why we need you

As a Marketing and Awareness Volunteer, you will help to grow the profile of Leeds Weekend Care Association and identify ways in which we can do this. Raising awareness is vital so we can reach more families who may need our support and reach more people who could support us as a charity. This role is flexible and we will collaborate with you to make it work for you!

What you’ll be doing

  • Support with digital marketing such as social media and our website
  • Traditional marketing such as distributing leaflets
  • Copywriting, such as press releases
  • Identifying opportunities for raising awareness e.g. awareness days and events

This list is not exhaustive – your volunteering experience will be shaped by your ideas!

What we’re looking for

  • Someone who is enthusiastic and creative
  • Someone with good time management and organisation skills
  • Someone with good literacy and writing skills
  • Skills and background in marketing are desirable but not essential

What you’ll get out of volunteering with LWCA

  • Marketing and awareness raising experience at a local charity
  • Developing marketing and copywriting skills
  • Building confidence and communication skills
  • Opportunities to pitch your own ideas!

How much time do I need to commit?

This is a flexible role and how much time you can commit is up to you and your personal circumstances. We would ideally like you to offer your support at least once a week. As this role will mostly be remote, consistent communication with the Community Fundraising Manager is a must. You will be supported by the CFM and, as our fundraising volunteer group grows, we will arrange volunteer meet ups.
