PR/Media Volunteer

We are in need of a PR/Media volunteer who would be responsible for liaising with the press, sending out press releases and for a general media strategy.  In case the press wants to talk to us, the volunteer would be responsible for forwarding the requests to a suitable person in the group. We already have established close ties with the local press but we want to consolidate them.
 
The volunteer will work in a team of media volunteers responsible for the website and social media and will meet with this team regularly.  The role would require about 4 hours of work every week.
We are looking for an individual with the following attributes: passionate about helping refugees and resettling them in the UK, good writing and communication skills, some media or press experience desired

What you need to know about the role:
  • You should be able to work independently and be happy to talk to many different groups and organizations in Cambridge and surroundings.
  • Most of the work can be carried out flexibly, whenever you have time, but you should be able to schedule face-to-face meetings with local groups.
  • You will get induction and training and will work with a wonderful and passionate group of volunteers from the Cambridge area.
  • Our group holds regular meetings in central Cambridge, though, which you should attend.
How to apply: Please email us at info@cambridgerefugees.org with a short letter containing your name, address, phone number, and a short discussion about why you want to apply and why you are fit for the role (no more than 300 words).
