Volunteer • Part Time 00447594993461 Scott Gudrich

Sectors: marine conservation, environmental education

Closing date: Thursday, 30th July 2020  

We aim to bring together the professional marine community and communities along the English Coast. We want to do this by having a host of marine scientists and professionals walk stretches of the English Coastal Path and give talks in the villages, towns and cities they pass through. The idea is that by the end of 2021 the entirety of the ECP will have been walked by the marine community, with talks delivered in more than 180 locations. This will be achieved by assigning interested individuals to the stretches they want to walk and mapping our endeavours on an interactive map. Apart from giving talks, participants can also blog about their walks, sharing pictures and impressions and thus introducing the English Coast, its beauty and the challenges it faces, to a wider digital public. 

You will assist with tasks across the communications team. Your duties may include creating content for Social Media, writing blog posts, involvement in creating a newsletter, scripting a podcast, and drafting press statements. Your own level of engagement will determine the scope of this role, it provides a nice playground for a creative person. 

Requirements: You are a clear and concise communicator and you are passionate about science communication. Your written English is impeccable and you can tailor content to diverse audiences. You work well on your own and also within a team. Ideally, you will have prior experience in regularly producing content for Social Media (this does not have to be within a work-related context!). You have a keen eye for design and great attention to detail.
