Be part of Hollaback London – Volunteers needed
***UPDATE: If you’ve already been in touch in the last few months, drop us a line if you’re still interested***
Hollaback London was founded in 2010 by two volunteers, Bryony and Julia, and continues to be run by them, with the support of a bigger team of other more casual volunteers. As our project grows, our team needs to grow with it, this is where you come in!
Hollaback London has two strands, our online presence in the form of our website, social media and smart phone app, and our outreach and advisory work through which we run campaigns, workshops and advise public and private sector organisations on ending harassment.
We are looking to expand our casual volunteer team to support the running of this project, undertaking day to day tasks such as managing the website, wo/manning our social media outlets, updating our press page, responding to enquiries, representing Hollaback London at events, supporting the Directors in producing resources, conducting research and data entry. We are looking for a minimum three month commitment of involvement, mostly online work only with occasional evening meetings, but you’re welcome to get as involved as you have time to be! We’re always seeking to expand our website and are keen to offer you opportunities to develop any specific projects that you might be interested in. Hollaback London is for all Londoners, as such we want your input, so this is also an opportunity to contribute to the movement.
We are particularly interested in those who are interested in broadening their social media skills.
