This is an opportunity to play a vital role in a respected environmental organisation, being part of a friendly and passionate group, and developing an interest in or experience of social media work.

CPRE Sussex works to promote the beauty, tranquillity and diversity of Sussex countryside by encouraging the sustainable use of land and other natural resources in town and country. We encourage appropriate and sustainable land-use, farming, woodland and biodiversity policies and practice to improve the well-being of rural communities.

An important part of the work of CPRE Sussex is to raise awareness of countryside issues and campaign against threats such as inappropriate development. Working with the Director, you would:

  • post up-dates on the CPRE Sussex Facebook page 2-3 times per week
  • tweet/retweet 2-3 times per week
  • identify influential organisations and individuals to follow and link with on social media
  • grow a social media support base
  • use 38 Degrees and their campaigning tools to support key campaigns
  • attend occasional events and post follow up across social media.

Our Branch Office is in Blackboys, near Uckfield so you have the choice to either work from here or work at home. We keep in regular contact via phone and/or email to discuss progress and to provide support. You would also be encouraged to attend our media group meetings.

The role is voluntary although we pay reasonable out-of-pocket expenses with prior agreement, in line with our Volunteers Policy.
