MARKETING, COMMUNICATIONS AND SOCIAL MEDIA VOLUNTEER

 

Do you want to help to bring about wholeness in a fragmented world? Do you know about digital marketing and social media? Then we want to hear from you.

If you think that you don’t quite match the profile described below but still would like to contribute, please feel free to get in touch - we are always happy to hear from people who are willing to help!

 

The Psychosynthesis Trust is a small and busy charity who helps people reveal their full potential and become more of who they are. We offer personal development courses, professional training and counselling & psychotherapy.

We are looking for volunteers to support our Marketing & Communications Manager to develop new projects and strategies that will help us: 

- raise awareness about psychosynthesis

- deliver maximum impact & reach, engage and inspire those who need our help

In return we offer flexible hours, and the opportunity to work at the forefront of a purpose driven organisation enabling human potential.

 

WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO

 

The Psychosynthesis Trust is a leading training organisation in psychosynthesis, offering transformative learning experiences (personal development courses and professional training) and counselling to those who wish to learn more about themselves personally and/or explore their options professionally.

The Psychosynthesis Trust is a small educational charity that has a rich 50- year history in the UK.  Our founders were pioneering leaders in education, psychology, science and spirituality and we continue to work at that nexus today.  Our work is based on psychosynthesis – a transpersonal psychological model and approach that integrates the spiritual aspect of the human experience.

Our values and our culture consider the whole, both in terms of individuals and society, as well as from an organisational perspective. We orientate to working with the qualities of love and will, bringing the principles of curiosity, inquiry and responsibility to our work and to each other.

The Trust has an intention of playing an important role in one of the most exciting times in history – helping more people to finding meaning, purpose, wellbeing and a sense of place in an increasingly complex world.  We believe that our work will help to enable an expanded sense of human consciousness in individuals and in society.

Love:  We are looking for people who appreciate the strengths and potential in themselves and in others and supporting others in reaching their fullest potential.

Inquiry:  We value an environment where we are learning as we go through our actions and taking time to reflect on what works, what doesn’t and what we need to do to evolve and adapt. 

Will:  We want to be intentional in our actions which are underpinned by strength, goodness and skill

Responsibility:  It is important that we all take ownership to ‘know, master and transform ourselves’ and our relationships so that we can be of service to ourselves and others
