Education Communications Volunteer

The Understanding Humanism team delivers Humanists UK’s extensive range of free education resources and services via the Understanding Humanism website, our teacher training programme, and free school speaker visits, which are all valued highly by teachers and students alike.  The Humanist Heritage project and website explores the rich history and influence of humanism in the UK.  Created and maintained by the Understanding Humanism team, the Assemblies for All website provides teachers with access to a fantastic range of carefully selected, high quality, inclusive assemblies, with material from a wide variety of providers brought together on one easy-to-use platform.  We are looking for an Education Communications volunteer to help us promote this work.

Can you turn our user statistics, feedback, profiles of our people, or extracts from newly-published resources into engaging stories and blog posts? Can you write and schedule persuasive social media content?  Could you help us identify fresh promotional opportunities?  If you’re social media savvy and good with words, we’d love to hear from you!

The role would suit someone who has social media experience, and good writing and research skills. Some knowledge of schools, or of the education world more broadly, would be an advantage – but interest in what we offer, and curiosity about new avenues that we can explore is equally important.  We’re looking for an ongoing commitment of approximately four to eight hours per week (three months minimum) to help us deliver our regular social media output and to respond to changing events. But the activities are flexible and can be scheduled around other commitments.

You can find out more in the information pack.  To apply, please email telling us why you’re interested in the role and what you would bring to it.  If you have any questions, contact the People Officer, Georgia Sorrell on – they’ll be happy to talk about the role with you.

Thank you for your interest. We’ll look forward to hearing from you!
