Humanists UK has a small team of expert staff, and a friendly and supportive work environment. Our staff and volunteer vacancies are below.

Volunteer Roles

Volunteers are essential to what we do at Humanists UK. Whether it’s helping out around the office, coordinating our work in schools or hospitals, helping us with specialist research, or lending us your particular talents in areas like design and technology, we aim to ensure you have the most positive volunteer experience possible. We regularly update this page as new roles become available.

Our volunteers come from all backgrounds: retired people with time to spare to come into the office or work on significant projects from home, young people on a gap year between school and university or with spare time while looking for work, parents who are available to work a few hours in the middle of the day, people running small businesses or in creative or other professions who want to offer pro bono professional support. Volunteers carrying out significant roles can use desk space at our central London offices but many work from home.
