Help review and update our copy ahead of the launch of our brand new website!

IT / Programming volunteer needed for Make-A-Wish in RG1

We’re looking for a volunteer who can help us get our new website up and running – this is an ideal opportunity for someone who wants to gain great experience with a high-profile charity brand, and who has the skills to make sure we can be found online.

Our website is a pivotal tool for fundraising and storytelling. It is having a long-overdue overhaul. We have a new framework from which we can build and develop our online presence – launching live in early July.

To get us to that point, we need to review and update all our relevant website copy and make sure there’s copy for all the pages we need.

What will I be doing?

  • Reviewing website content and articles.
  • Rewriting copy according to a set of guidelines and standards.
  • Proofreading copy.
  • Reviewing copy for keywords and other SEO requirements.
  • Working in offline copy and in the new content management system.
  • Tagging images and ensuring information is properly structured.
