Social Media Volunteer
SummaryWe work to protect, promote and enhance the Somerset countryside. Could you help increase support for our charity by reaching new audiences on social media?
We’re passionate about making the countryside in Somerset a better place for everyone to enjoy. Our committed team of volunteers inspire people to care for the countryside and enjoy the benefits it brings wherever they live.
Volunteering with us is a fantastic way to help us champion environmental issues such as the climate emergency, renewable energy, biodiversity and sustainable transport.
With your support we can do even more! We need a Social Media Volunteer to help us to engage supporters through adding regular content about our activities and the subjects we are passionate about.
We can provide you with training and support to help you develop in your role. You’ll gain valuable skills and experience in managing social media channels and learn more about the environmental sector.
Our social media channels (Twitter, Facebook & Instagram) are a key part in bringing our work to a wider audience and attracting new people to support us.
