Help change food in Bristol for good - digital and event comms assistance needed

Details Hide[-]

We are looking for volunteers for both the digital/remote work and the face-to-face public engagement. You may have a preference for one and not the other which is fine. The event work is likely to be on hold for the time being in light of COVID-19 and we may have a number of our key events cancelled in the early summer. We are looking for volunteers to help with the digital work immediately. 

We already have a great deal of data from individuals who have registered on our website. We need help

  • going through this and find key stories or individuals who can help inspire others. 
  • finding information within the data about people's behaviours.
  • compiling mailing lists based on people's actions. 
  • assisting with email communication.
  • creating engaging social media posts or email content.

This work would suit someone who has skills/interest in some of the following areas:

  • Sustainable living
  • Food
  • Data analysis
  • Comms/marketing
  • Design
  • Behaviour change

I anticipate a commitment of no more than one or two hours a week, depending on how many interested volunteers apply!

We are also eager to recruit for event volunteers now for later in the summer. For this role you should have some knowledge and interest in issues around food, be energetic and motivated, compassionate, senstive and tactful, friendly and warm. You will receive full training.
