Colchester Humanists Branch Coordinator

Colchester Humanists is a local branch of Humanists UK. All Humanists UK members and supporters in the branch area are automatically part of the branch.Colchester Humanists aim to provide a range of activities for non-religious living in Colchester to meet, socialise, campaign, raise awareness of humanism, participate in local civic life and support each other. The branch represents Humanists UK and the local humanist community at public events and in public forums.

We are seeking a dedicated and driven Coordinator to join our Committee, to assist in delivering these core activities:

  • Lead on developing a meaningful planned programme of activities for the local humanist community, and ensure the branch volunteer team has the members and skills necessary to deliver this plan.
  • Lead on working with and reporting to Humanists UK, to ensure that what Colchester Humanists is doing fits the wider organisation and that economies of scale/crossovers/other opportunities aren’t missed.
  • Take responsibility for ensuring that Colchester Humanists activities are inclusive and welcoming.

This application pack contains all the information you will need to decide whether the role is right for you, including what you would get out of the role and what we expect you would bring to the role.

Whatever your background, or prior experiences, if you’re passionate about creating an inclusive, effective humanist community in and around Colchester, we’d love to hear from you.

To apply for the role, please email by Friday, 26 May 2023 letting us know:

  • Who you are, including a little bit about yourself
  • Why you are interested in the role
  • What do you think you’d bring to the role (e,g. your skills and experiences that would be particularly relevant)
  • What you’d like to get out of the role
  • Any concerns, or extra support you’d need in the role

This need not be a long essay, it’s just to help us understand who you are, and why you’d be a good fit. If you have a current CV, that would also be helpful but isn’t essential. You are welcome to contact Humanists UK ( to discuss the role before applying.
