This role now filled.  Thanks for looking.

Are you interested in marketing and publicity and want to make a difference to those affected by Parkinson’s?

Our branch is looking for a Marketing and Publicity Volunteer to help build our profile and communicate with the local community. Anyone can apply for this role – you don’t have to have a connection with Parkinson’s.

Through this role you will:

  • help to promote activities through leaflets and posters, this web site and in the local media
  • work with the branch and other volunteers to gather information about upcoming events and activities, and write them up in a concise, attractive way to be used in publicity
  • develop ways to promote the branch, including leaflets and posters, local media, online and social media

This is a fun and creative role and through becoming a Marketing and Publicity Volunteer you will:

  • forge new friendships and meet new people, both in the branch and in the local community
  • gain valuable organisational, teamwork and people skills
  • help to make sure people affected by Parkinson’s in the local area know about the branch’s activities
  • use your marketing and communication skills and experience to make a real difference
  • learn about the work of a major health charity, and be an important part of the wider Parkinson’s UK network

In order to fulfil this role you will have:

  • excellent writing and communication skills
  • regular access to a computer and experience of using email and Microsoft office
  • experience at writing press releases and news articles (useful but not essential)
  • the ability to stay motivated and work independently

No previous knowledge of Parkinson’s is necessary, but this would be helpful.

The role would involve about 3 hours per week, sometimes more.
