We currently have a number of volunteering opportunities. If you are interested in any of these roles, or would like some more information, please contact us using the form at the bottom of this page.
Social Media Volunteer
We are looking for an enthusiastic social media user who can help us to grow our followers, and promote human rights events organised by ourselves and other organisations in our network. You will also provide content and images that engage, inspire and inform, commenting on human rights aspects of relevant local and national news articles. An understanding of socio-economic rights in the UK would be advantageous.
For this role, we are looking for a commitment of around 6 hours per week, researching, drafting and scheduling posts for our Twitter and Facebook pages.
Community Voices Volunteer
Community Voices is a project that is sponsored by City of York Council. This project seeks to engage with members of the community who are less likely to be consulted by public agencies. The project is currently in a pilot phase, until the end of March 2019. You will simply talk to people from two different wards in the city, identifying common themes and any potential for cross-ward collaboration. Whilst knowledge of socio-economic rights would be an advantage, your ability to start conversations with a wide range of people is more important.
For this role, we are looking for a commitment of around 3 hours per week.
We will be recruiting for volunteers to work with us on the 2019 indicator report during spring 2019. Last year, we focused on the Right to Housing, and we will publish more information on this year’s target areas shortly. Volunteers will be part of a team collecting information from members of certain communities, and members of the general public. You will also be involved in analysing the data, and helping to design and collate the report. There is also an opportunity, if you have digital skills, to assist in creating an interactive, online version of the report.
For this role, we are looking for a commitment of between 20 and 40 hours between April and August 2019.
