An opportunity to work with the planning team for the York International Women’s Week programme, from now until the middle of March 2020. 

The team are looking for someone to schedule tweets to promote the programme of events and carry out related social media activity in the run up to the events (7th – 15th March 2020).


Social Media Volunteer – Priority Rights

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 Volunteers

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. We are looking for volunteers with an interest in challenging hate crime to work with us on the current phase of the projects which runs to September 2019. Whilst knowledge of socio-economic rights would be an advantage, your ability to start conversations with a wide range of people is more important. Experience of interviewing and/or facilitating focus groups would be helpful in this role.

For this role, we are looking for a commitment of around 3 hours per week.
