Volunteer Administrators Needed

We launched The Essex Map in 2019, in order to promote the groups, services, and activities in Essex which focus on community rather than making profit. Following the outbreak of COVID-19, we are working with Essex County Council and other key partners in the county to co-ordinate offers of support to those who are self-isolating.

We launched The Essex Map in 2019, in order to promote the groups, services, and activities in Essex which focus on community rather than making profit. Following the outbreak of COVID-19, we are working with Essex County Council and other key partners in the county to co-ordinate offers of support to those who are self-isolating.

We are looking to recruit volunteers who can work from home to populate The Essex Map with relevant listings (pending approval from the Project Lead) so that residents are kept informed of what is available to them.

Benefits of Volunteering

As this role will be hosted by Mind in West Essex, successful candidates will be eligible to claim time credits for each hour volunteered, which can be used for courses with Adult Community Learning (ACL) in Essex, fitness centres and activities, and even tickets at venues such as Harlow Playhouse.

Purpose of the Role

The main objective of this post is to play a key role in the administration of The Essex Map, and thereby improving its usefulness.

This will include sourcing content for The Essex Map from social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and then liaising with the organisations to creating a listing for their offering on The Essex Map. These listings will normally be restricted to charities, social enterprises and community groups, but during the coronavirus outbreak the platform has been extended to include profit-focused organisations who are offering key services in the community such as deliveries to those who are self-isolating, home school assistance, business support, and activities that adhere to the social distancing guidelines from NHS and WHO.

Apply

To apply for this role, please email [email protected] with a short introduction of who you are and why you are interested in this role.

Our Project Lead, Emma Wardall, will then contact you for an informal discussion.
