Volunteering and coronavirus: How you can help

Social Media Volunteer
The Loss Foundation

Job Description

We are looking for a volunteer to join our organisation to help run our social media channels

The Loss Foundation is a registered charity specialising in providing bereavement support for people whose loved ones die of cancer. In response to the pandemic, the charity now also supports people who lose a loved one to coronavirus. Support groups and therapy events are currently running online, and in-person support will begin again when it is safe to do so.

We are looking to take on more volunteers as we scale up our services nationally. We welcome applications from compassionate, reliable and conscientious volunteers with excellent communications skills and an interest in helping others.

The charity is run by volunteer clinical psychologists and doctors (qualified and in training), as well as those from other professions. We have an incredibly brilliant team, all passionate about offering the best possible care to an often-ignored population.

This particular volunteer role will involve overseeing the charity's social media channels (currently Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) and creating and posting content. This will equate to approximately 5 hours a week needed. The successful candidate will have vast experience of social media, excellent organisational skills, flexibility, and enthusiasm for supporting those who are grieving.

Our charity is committed to supporting our volunteers in getting the experience they need to further their career goals. We are happy to offer career development support, which includes paying for appropriate training to help upskill our volunteers and help with their development. We very much welcome applications from people with diverse skills, interests and backgrounds. More than anything, if you are genuinely interested in helping others, we would love to hear from you.

You can see information on The Loss Foundation along with a list of our current team on our website.

We ask for at least a 6 month commitment.
