Are you a social media whizz looking for a volunteering opportunity?

If yes, and you can spare 3-4 hours a month we’d love to hear from you.

Who are we?

Sussex Pathways is a criminal justice charity, which works within prisons and communities with the aim of reducing offending behaviours and empowering ex-offenders to make positive life choices. Through our Group work and 1-2-1 support, we work with residents and ex-residents of HMPPS to help ensure that every person is supported to achieve their potential.

 

What we’re looking for?

A Social Media whizz who can share their knowledge and skills with our core team? Our charity does great work, but we need to raise our profile and share more about it. We’re looking for someone who is great with social media who can:

  • Reinvigorate our key social channels (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter)

  • Help shape and plan our social media activity

  • Share best practice

  • Help us craft engaging social messages which share our successes

  • Help us build a community who care about what we do, helping us to find volunteers for our programmes

  • Upskill our team! We don’t expect you to do all of the above yourself, but by sharing your expertise, you can help our team become competent and confident managing our channels

What’s involved in being a volunteer at Sussex Pathways?

  • 3-4 hours a month (although if you have more time to spare, we’d gladly take you up on that offer)

  • Mentoring, supporting and training our team and charity on all aspects of social media

  • You can join us in our office, or we’re more than happy for you to work remotely, and at times that suit you.

This important and rewarding role provides a unique opportunity to be part of the growth Sussex Pathways, ensuring that it continues to meet the needs of its service users in a positive and innovative way.

 

 More detailed / demanding requirements, but I think you’d find it harder to get someone to volunteer the time needed for this role
