  • You’ll have excellent writing and editing skills, experience of writing articles or blogs and an interest in social media marketing.
  • Ideally, you’ll be able to commit to volunteering for at least one day per week (or more!) but we can be flexible.
  • You will need to be comfortable working independently from home, with remote support from the Communications Officer.
  • You will have an interest in supporting unpaid carers and keen to gain an understanding about the issues that they face.
