Entry level

Thinking of spending some time as a Volunteer Social Media Assistant?

Volunteering as a Social Media Assistant at a charity is a great way to not only bulk up your work experience, but to use your expertise to help bring more attention to an important cause. As a volunteer, you'll only work a few days a week, but the organisation will be looking to you to help shape their social media strategy and introduce new trends that will boost their online presence. This role is most likely to appear in a small charity without the resources at hand to manage social channels themselves.
