Are you skilled in Adobe InDesign and do you have the latest version? Would you like to dedicate a small amount of time every six months to using your technological prowess to help save butterflies? (We're looking for someone to give us one to two days a month of their time every six months). 

Butterfly Conservation Gloucestershire is trialling a new six-monthly events guide which has been designed as an Indesign template but we'd like to hear from people anywhere with InDesign skills. Our events are crucial for saving species: in the winter months volunteers manage habitats for rare and threatened butterflies like the reintroduced Large Blue which became extinct in 1979; in the summer months we survey for butterflies and meet the public to inspire them to a love of butterflies, moths and their caterpillars. Our new events guide has been designed to bring new volunteers to our winter work parties and summer surveys, and signpost the public to our exciting family events.

Since Adobe InDesign became a monthly subscription service, our branch sadly cannot afford to use the software which means our template cannot be used a tool for promoting events currently. Branch members are not the most technological savvy people in any case! 

The role is very straightforward: receive events by email, input them into our pre-designed template, save it as a PDF and email it back to us!


  • Access to Adobe InDesign 2021
  • Able to troubleshoot a predesigned template saved in InDesign presently [linking fonts and design attributes to pre-existing template]
  • Able to input events sent to you by email into a template and delete unused parts of the template where the number of events is under the number of fields available to populate, reformating it to look good where appropriate
  • Ability to save doc as a PDF and send to relevant parties on email
  • Managing your time effectively every six months for a timely delivery. 

If this is something you'd like to help us with, then get in touch! Examples of your work using InDesign would be very useful. We'd be very grateful.
