We are looking for marketing volunteers

Are you looking to gain marketing experience & skills? Are you already a marketing pro who would like to support the Bishop Wilton community? 

We are looking for volunteers who can support our marketing efforts. Our marketing team help us ensure the community is happy with the shop, help us communicate news and help bring the community together. 

What would you be doing?

We are looking for individuals who can help us create content and also handle the management of our online communications. 

Key tasks include:

  1. Managing our social media presence (Facebook & Instagram)
  2. Scheduling and posting content on our social media channels and website
  3. Helping write content such as social media posts, blogs, web pages, flyers etc.
  4. Tracking and reporting on key marketing metrics
  5. Email mailing list management and campaigns

What skills and experience do you need?

If you have previous marketing experience that would be great, but we also have an experienced marketing team who could train someone up who is looking to learn. This would suit a marketing professional or someone who is looking to gain some experience & skills. 

If you can use Facebook, Instagram, have good written English and are passionate about the Bishop Wilton community then you have everything you need! 

How would it work? 

This is a voluntary role and you would provide two to four hours a week. The role can be performed remotely, but the team does meet in the shop or in Bishop Wilton for meetings occasionally (so being local would be beneficial). 

The team has a weekly meeting to discuss key focus for the weeks and months ahead and then each individual works on their areas of responsibility. Outside of the weekly call, the tasks can be performed whenever works. 

Why volunteer with us?

The Bishop Wilton Community Shop has been a great success and is a lot of fun. It is a great way to give back to and be a part of providing a vital service to the community. 

This is also a great way to gain experience and skill in marketing, retail and community enterprises.
