VACANCIES: Volunteer

At Humanists UK, we value the contributions of our volunteers greatly. We offer a wide range of volunteer opportunities, from helping out at our office to coordinating our work in schools and hospitals, conducting research, and using your unique skills in areas such as design and technology. We strive to provide a positive and fulfilling volunteer experience for all. New roles are regularly added to our website, so be sure to check it regularly.

Our volunteers come from diverse backgrounds, including retirees, gap year students, parents, small business owners, and professionals who wish to offer pro bono support. Whether you have a few hours to spare during the day, are running a business, or are looking for work, we welcome you to join our team. Volunteers who take on significant roles will have access to our London office, but many also have the option to work remotely.

If you cannot see a role which sounds suitable for you, please consider sharing your skills and interest here and a member of the People Team will be in touch to discuss what volunteering for Humanists UK could look like for you!
