Boost your career with Go Volunteer…
Are you an active volunteer and/or keen to develop your leadership and development skills? Do you want to support a project that helps out your local community?
At Go Volunteer we encourage students to step out of their comfort zone to become project leads and marketing coordinators. Both of these opportunities are fantastic ways to develop, lead, manage and promote projects which have a positive effect on the local community. Along the way you will develop the key skills future employers look for allowing you to really stand out on job applications and in interviews.
Are you an organised person who likes to develop and take the initiative? Our project leaders coordinate a team of volunteers to ensure the effective delivery of a student-led community-benefit project. By managing the project’s activities, you will oversee that all activities are performed safely and alongside your volunteer team take responsibility for the project’s evaluation and ongoing sustainability.
Don’t worry though, you won’t be doing all this work alone. But you will be responsible for delegating day-to-day tasks to your excellent volunteer team, coordinating the workloads of your team and supporting them in their roles. You will also act as a spokesperson for the project and act as a central point of contact for the partner organisations your project works with.
To fulfil this role, you will need to be self-motivated and able to work independently. As we said before, you won’t be alone in this process as our Go Volunteer staff are always available to provide support.
Are you a social media whizz? Interested in developing your marketing skills including copywriting for web, email and press releases? How does coordinating social media and campus outreach sound?
At Go Volunteer we are always on the lookout for students who are interested in helping us spread word of what we do for students and the wider community. Our volunteer marketing coordinator positions are available on a flexible position, however, you will be required to attend a range of Go Volunteer projects, from outdoor activities to sessions at local schools and community sessions. You will then market these projects by utilising our social media channels and writing copy in our weekly newsletters and on our website.
Go Volunteer prides itself on flexibility and therefore we offer a range of flexible positions to fit around your timetable and other commitments.
To fulfil this role, you will need to be self-motivated and able to work independently. However, you won’t be alone in this process as our Go Volunteer staff are always available to provide support.
Full training, including project, volunteer and budget management, is provided for all our prospective project leads and marketing coordinators, as well as ongoing support from our team of project workers. For further details please contact Phil hay on firstname.lastname@example.org
