About the volunteering opportunity

Social Media Editor for Animal Welfare Organisation

We are looking for support for our social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn) for our operational day-to-day business. We already have quite a reach in various channels, but would like to expand this through regular and meaningful postings. The idea of educating people about animal welfare issues (focus on dogs/cats) is very important to us.

Other Things You Should Know

Important notice

We always have interested people who initially want to help us, but then do not fulfill their tasks. If you apply to join us, please remember that social media is an operational day-to-day business that exists throughout. We have a team in the public relations department, you can agree on tasks and distribute them. But we still need a certain reliability, as we depend on our external communication, among other things for fundraising. You will definitely need between 2 and 4 hours a week, although more is possible of course, especially when it comes to content creation. There are no limits when it comes to researching animal welfare topics and creating appropriate articles. The work and coordination in the team is very important for us despite mainly virtual work - we are an association and live this.


Your support is needed on a long-term basis.
