Internal Communications volunteer

Internal Communications volunteer

We are expanding our publicity team to enable a focus on internal communications.  We want to ensure our staff, volunteers and trustees are kept informed about our work and activities.  We also want to ensure they are kept motivated thus enabling them to effectively support our work.

 

What will you do?

 

Working with our Publicity Manager, you will:

 

  • complete an introduction to Citizens Advice and training for your role
  • help establish an internal communications strategy
  • ensure CAEE activities are successfully communicated to staff, volunteers and trustees. This will include developments in our advice work, enabling involvement in our research & campaigns work, promoting fundraising activities, raising awareness of training opportunities and ensuring an understanding of our overall strategy
  • plan, edit and write content for various internal communications channels
  • support our CEO and trustees in their internal communications including through staff presentations
  • ensure internal communications are consistent across the organisation and also with external messaging

 

What’s in it for you?

 

  • make a real difference to people’s lives
  • learn about a range of areas such as benefits, debt and housing, and how problems in these areas can affect clients
  • build on valuable skills such as communication, research, campaigns, and how to engage with a range of audiences
  • increase your employability
  • have a positive impact in your community

And we’ll reimburse expenses too.

 

 

What skills do you need to have?

You do not need specific qualifications for this role but you will need to:

  • have good writing, editing and proofreading skills

  • have good IT skills including use of social media
  • be willing to learn about and follow the Citizens Advice aims, principles and policies, including confidentiality and data protection

Journalistic ability and/or marketing skills would be an advantage as would experience in internal and/or external communications.
