Job description

Communications Volunteer (Milton Keynes)

Making sure our volunteers and members are kept up-to-date with both local and national news is vital. Our communication volunteers use social media and newsletters to make sure everyone from our MS community is informed about any MS Society updates as well as upcoming activities or events.

We’re the MS Society – a community of people living with MS, scientists, campaigners, listeners, organisers, ambassadors and fundraisers. Our volunteers are a key part of achieving our goals and their support is vital. Join us.

About this opportunity
We are looking to recruit a Communications Volunteer for the Milton Keynes Group. As a Communications Volunteer you will make sure the local MS community is aware of our updates and upcoming activities or events at the group.

We are a small and friendly team of 6 volunteers who meet monthly to plan and deliver a variety of events, activities and services with and for people affected by multiple sclerosis across the area we cover. We currently provide regular socials, a grants programme, information and signposting, Pilates and swimming classes and much more. We also fundraise throughout the year to ensure we are able to provide these activities.

We produce a regular newsletter and are keen to recruit a friendly and enthusiastic volunteer to join the team and take on this task. The newsletter is one of the key ways the group reaches out beyond its membership. The role is varied but will typically involve writing and editing the newsletters and promotional materials. We're very passionate about making sure that people affected by MS across the area have access to all of the above and we are really keen to welcome you on board with the team to help us do even more. So if you'd like to make a big difference, please get in touch with us today!

You will be volunteering at home and will be able to meet up with our volunteer Coordinating Team each month. We are very flexible about the hours and days you volunteer because we understand that you have other commitments, but the anticipated time for this role is expected to be approximately 6 to 12 hours per month.

You will receive a welcome pack and volunteer induction and regular support from the rest of the volunteer team and a local member of staff. You’ll also have opportunities to attend volunteer forums to meet with other volunteers, share learning and experiences and receive national updates. Out of pocket expenses can be claimed in line with our expenses policy

We need you to get involved and help make positive changes to the lives of people affected by MS.
This is a great opportunity to gain experience within a large charity and develop your existing skills and learn new ones.

About you
You’ll have an interest in the MS Society and the work that we do, as well as the enthusiasm to represent both us and our values locally. You will understand the needs of people affected by MS in your area and be sympathetic to the needs and motivations of volunteers. You’ll be comfortable using the internet and email, be able to communicate clearly in written and spoken English and understand the importance of keeping people’s personal data safe.

You’ll need to be based in or near Milton Keynes to carry out this role.
