EachOther Is Looking For Three Volunteers

Institutions

EachOther is looking for three enthusiastic and dedicated volunteers to help carry out a number of projects in our media and editorial teams.

We owe a lot to our volunteers. When human rights barrister Adam Wagner started RightsInfo, as we were then called, four years ago – most of the stories on our website were written by volunteers.

We know how important volunteers can be. Since then we’ve expanded and grown and been set up as a full time charity.

We now have an in-house editorial and creative team but we still have volunteers who help us.

What’s Involved?

For this particular opportunity, we’re in search of three volunteers. Successful applicants will be assigned to one of the following administrative projects:

  • Helping with amending and editing web content for our new website
  • Helping on a design research project
  • Helping with writing copy for our video pages

Basic Information

These three volunteering roles are based in our office in Holloway Road, London.

We are looking for a commitment of at least one day a week for a minimum of three months – and we look to set you up with one or two contained projects in that time.

We will cover travel costs to and from our office (within London travel zones 1 – 6) and a daily lunch allowance up to a maximum of £7. All volunteer roles are unpaid.

We welcome volunteers from outside London, but we can’t help with travel arrangements, work permits or accommodation.
