We are looking for an enthusiastic student or graduate who is passionate about our work and wants hands-on experience designing and creating communication materials for a charity.

Are you looking for voluntary experience to help launch your career in the charity sector? Then this is the role for you. 

We are looking for an enthusiastic student or graduate who is passionate about our work and wants hands-on experience designing and creating communication materials for a charity.

As a volunteer we offer you the chance to get involved by creating fundraising packs, finding creative ways to design materials that talk about our work and supporting our social media channels. Previous volunteers have had the chance to design thank you cards for supporters, create videos and infographic images and have produced content for our website and newsletters. 

In return we can help you get your dream job in sector by giving advice on writing CVs and cover letters and help you prepare for job interviews through coaching and trial questions.  Our past three volunteers have all left us to start full time roles within the charity sector. Here is what they said about their time with us:

'It’s safe to say the one day I spent each week volunteering for Theodora Children’s Charity was my favourite day of the week.'

'When I first began volunteering at Theodora Children’s Charity I thought I would simply receive some valuable experience, yet the skills I've learnt and developed here are truly invaluable, in addition to the tremendous sense of purpose I've found in working here; it's nice being around people that make an effort to create smiles on young faces across the UK who are suffering from illness or disability.'

We are offering the volunteer role as a part-time position and all applicants should be available to give a minimum of 4 days of their time each month.

No prior experience of working in the charity sector is necessary but applicants should have strong written and spoken communications skills, experience of using design software, a confident telephone manner and a 'can do' attitude. 

If you would like to join our team then please do get in touch with alice.barley@theodora.org. We look forward to hearing from you.
