Want to help shape the future of democracy whilst gaining experience in policy-making, report-writing, and event-planning?
We’re looking for three new volunteers to join our team.
Examples of activities you can expect to get involved with include:
- Assisting with policy roundtables and focus groups
- Designing recommendations and co-authoring reports
- Helping organise panels and our popular, evening event series
Time commitment: Volunteers are expected to contribute around two to three hours a week, however this may differ on occasion, e.g. with events. In addition, they will be expected to attend occasional team meetings in London.
Qualifications: Knowledge of UK politics and, ideally, previous experience (academic or work) of research methods and report-writing. Additionally, we are looking for individuals who have a demonstrable interest in technology and democracy.
Closing date: Friday 17th May 2019, 11.59pm.
Volunteering with WebRoots Democracy is a great opportunity to gain invaluable experience, to meet new people, and to make a difference. Our existing and previous volunteers have gone onto gain employment in political parties, charities, think tanks, the Civil Service, and Parliament.
To apply, please email a covering letter (1 page max) setting out why you would be suited to the role as well as your CV (2 pages max) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email Areeq at the same address.
