Job Title: Volunteers (x 2)
Working For: Protection Approaches
Charity Number: 1171433
Salary: £10 will be provided for each day worked to cover expenses
Hours: This is a voluntary position, there are no set hours
We are looking for committed and engaged people excited by the opportunity to become involved in an innovative human rights charity in the fight against identity-based violence.
You will become part of our small, dedicated team and have the opportunity to participate in various aspects of our work.
These positions may suit students, retirees, or those who work part time. While these positions are unpaid, we believe in reciprocal working relationships. For less experienced volunteers we will endeavour to provide professional development, mentorship, and skill development throughout your time with us. You will have the opportunity to gain experience in event planning, develop your research and publication portfolio, and to contribute to urgent conversations around atrocity prevention and civilian protection.
We’re looking for volunteers in the following areas:
You’ll be helping to draft funding applications, identify new funding sources, and developing your own charity sector fundraising portfolio. You will need to be creative and enjoy thinking up innovative ways to fundraise. You’ll have good research and writing skills. Knowledge of bid writing, public philanthropy, and the grant making sector would be a great asset.
Learning and Outreach
Protection Approaches offers school or college based workshops and assemblies led by experienced, professional facilitators. They provide a safe environment to debate sensitive and sometimes difficult issues around prejudice and extremism.
You will provide support to our programme manager and workshop facilitators. This might include developing and undertaking promotion strategies, liaising with schools and colleges, and supporting the team on workshop development. You will need to be passionate about working with young people and well organised.
You may choose to undertake training to become a schools workshop facilitator, which is a part-time paid position. This is not a requirement in order to volunteer.
