Use your journalistic flair to help promote our work

Marketing / PR volunteer needed for Age UK Reading

We are looking for someone who has an interest in blogging or writing with purpose, who could regularly attend Age UK Reading events, services and campaigns, and who could write short blogs and articles about our work.

The journalist would take photographs of Age UK workers, volunteers and clients, and obtain the relevant permissions to use the photos.

They would also assist with press releases and general promotion of our organisation.

We would hope that our community journalist could produce a minimum of one article per month.

This work is a really important way to bring our work to life on our website, social media and publications, and will form a vital part of the Age UK Reading team.
