What will you be doing?

Historically based in South Buckinghamshire, we are a small, well established registered charity which has been running for 30+ years. We are an entirely self help group providing job search advice and support to unemployed professionals, managers and graduates.  Applicants for this socila media role can be based anywhere in the UK because all the work will be online with online contact with others in the Careers Springboard team. Since March 2020 our presentations, coaching and meetings have been virtual via Zoom.thus allowing us to widen our potential market. We now need someone to help us improve and expand out profile on social media to ensure that beneficiaries, job seekers and funders are aware of our services. Social media will be an important marketing tool to be developed. Maybe the volunteer can start by working on simple Careers Springboard items on Twitter, or maybe on  LinkedIn, or maybe on facebook. We currently have a team of only 1-2 volunteers working on our social media profile. Our aim is to expand this team in order to help expand our exposure on social media.

What are we looking for?

We are seeking a volunteer who has social media ability / experience to help us to raise our profile. Proven success through maximising the use of social media will be expected.   Experience of working in a voluntary capacity and voluntary environment will be an advantage. The social media volunteer will have the capacity to plan and work alone but with guidance and recommendations from other members of the social media team and from 1-2 of the 8 trustees who manage the charity. Living in the South Bucks area will be an advantage but is definitely not essential. Success will be measured by the rate of job seekers joining us via social media contact.

What difference will you make?

We want to become more well known within the community and more widely. Currently our beneficiaries find us through recommendation or referral. We want to utilise social media to expand our visibility, relevance and impact in order to attract more job seekers to our weekly virtual Zoom meetings. Unemployment can be isolating. It can damage confidence and self esteem, impacting not only the financial but emotional stability of those involved. We have the capacity to support more people through our services. Your work with social media would enable us to do that by increasing awareness. The success of your social media efforts would be visible weekly as more job seekers join us and benefit from our services.
