Role 1: Volunteer Recruitment and Allocation
Email us at development[at]gmlaw.org.uk by 29th September

We require one volunteer to process applications and to survey other volunteers who are currently inactive. This will require coming into our premises one day per fortnight to work alongside our Development Workers. You will call and email current and prospective volunteers to establish what brings them to GMLC, what their availability is, and the opportunities that we can offer them.

For the role of Volunteer Recruitment and Allocation co-ordinator, please email us at development[at]gmlaw.org.uk by 29th September, with:

  • Your availability
  • Any previous experience you may have with managing a team
  • A contact number

Role 2: Social Media, Marketing and Web Team
Email us at development[at]gmlaw.org.uk by 29th September

Our online presence is incredibly important for community engagement and campaign potential. Our posts can reach thousands of people and we often receive responses from high-profile figures. We require a team of 3 volunteers, preferably with social media, web and article-writing experience, to help us with our online activity. This will include scheduling twitter and facebook posts and collating information for our website articles. Our Development Workers will send you prompts for you to convert into shareable content.
Most of this work can be conducted remotely, but we will require initial training and occasional meetings at our premises.

To join our Social Media, Marketing and Web Team, please email us at development[at]gmlaw.org.uk by 29th September, with:

  • Your availability
  • Any previous experience you may have with marketing, social media and article production
  • A contact number

Role 3: Editorial and Research Group
Please fill in the doodle poll by 29th September.

The launch of our Editorial and Research Group earlier this year was a resounding success. Our volunteers research and write articles on topical legal issues, which we then publish and share.
We paired students with professionals to make the most of our diverse volunteer base. These teams published sensitive and analytical pieces on the legal issues surrounding the Grenfell fire, on the causes of homelessness, and on the trials of those navigating the benefits system. These articles have been picked up by external news sources such as the Legal Voice, and widely shared on social media. Thank you to Chris, Heba, Jennifer, Sam, Eimear, Paul, Ben and Rosalie for their work.

During the week commencing 16th October, we will meet at our premises to compile teams for our next round of articles. If you are interested in joining us, please fill in this doodle poll with your availability. We will only meet on one of the available dates.
