We’re looking for volunteers who have a good understanding of social media tools, including Twitter, Facebook and blogging. Advanced technical knowledge, coding etc, is not required.

As we’re looking to recruit a few volunteers we’re flexible about your skills – so you might be a keen blogger but not so good at video or you might be an expert on Twitter but not so great at writing lengthier articles.

You’d be:

• Updating social media platforms

• Monitoring social media for discussions and keywords associated with our work

Responding to online conversations

• Developing our online community of supporters

Measuring and reporting on our online coverage

We’ll offer:

A portfolio of online writing

Experience in the competitive world of social media

• The chance to play a key part in our strategy

The chance to gain experience of social media within the third sector

A full induction will be offered, we cover travel expenses and we’re flexible about the days/times/location you work.

Ultimately we’re looking to build a small team of volunteers who are passionate about social media who would like to get involved with a national charity that supports thousands of children and families across Scotland.

If you’re interested in applying or you just want an informal chat about the role please contact Gay Hickey on 0845 119 20 20 or

You can view the full opportunity on Volunteer Scotland’s website.

Those of you who have read my bio on here will know that one day a week I’m Digital Media Manager with Relationships Scotland. We’ve got some exciting plans afoot and, hopefully, a new website in the pipeline. To help us truly engage with Scottish families, professionals and policy makers we’re looking to build up a small team of passionate social media volunteers (see more detailed info above).

If you’re interested in this opportunity please contact Gay (details above) or drop me a tweet/DM @ThirdSectorLab
