Job Description

At Humanists UK, we want a tolerant world where rational thinking and kindness prevail. Our work helps people be happier and more fulfilled, and by bringing non-religious people together we help them develop their own views and an understanding of the world around them.

Our campaigns are divided into four areas: education; human rights and equality; secularism; and public ethical issues.

We are seeking a volunteer within the campaigns team for up to 3 months and for up to 3 days per week (to be negotiated). As part of a small expert team, you will provide assistance on national and local campaigns relating to our public affairs work. We are looking for a passionate, committed, articulate, and creative person with excellent research skills to take on this important role in our organisation.

Volunteers will have the opportunity to choose from and engage in a wide range of tasks, including:

  • Project work on policy issues

  • Providing administrative support to the campaigns team

  • Assisting with researching and monitoring relevant issues in media and politics

  • Monitoring and preparing material for the website

  • Communicating with a wide range of audiences, from Humanists UK members to parliamentarians to media

You will need to be committed to the aims of Humanists UK and have excellent written, verbal, and interpersonal communication skills.

Applicants should send a CV and a short covering note explaining why you are keen to volunteer with us, your research experience, why you think you are what we are looking for, and with your availability.
