Voluntary action plays a huge part in the day to day running of the Trust’s projects and in enriching our work.
Currently we are looking for volunteers for the following roles:
We are looking for someone with an interest in environmental issues who would like to develop and/or use their graphic design skills.
This is an excellent opportunity for someone who would like to gain experience of graphic design as part of a business development strategy and rebranding exercise. The role is the result of a thorough review of our business model, brand and communications strategies, and will be integrated into wider activity that aims to reach new audiences and give RLWT a fresher feel.
Digital Marketing Assistant
We are looking for someone with an interest in environmental issues who would like to develop and/or use their digital marketing skills. We currently have Facebook and Twitter accounts, and will be adding Instagram as soon as capacity allows.
This is an excellent opportunity for someone who would like to gain experience of digital marketing as part of a business development strategy. The role is the result of a thorough review of our business model and communications strategies, and will be supported by the digital marketing firm who have undertaken this review with us.
Events Events Events!
Over the next year we will be running all manner of events, from family activity days to walks, talks and social events. We are always looking for volunteers who would like to help with events – planning them, helping to run them, promote them and contribute ideas about their content. This is a really good opportunity to meet people from all walks of life who come to the Railway Land for all sorts of reasons, use old skills and learn new ones, make new friends and promote the work of the Trust.
The Meadow Minders meet at 1.30pm on the 1st Sunday of every month outside the Linklater Pavilion and carry out practical conservation work to restore important wildlife habitats and carry out maintenance of the site. Please wear clothes suitable for practical work and sturdy footwear. Protective gloves and tools are provided. Tasks generally finish between 3pm and 4pm depending on the job.
Lewes District Council Community Rangers manage the practical volunteers who undertake habitat management work.
DIY skills amongst the staff are limited to fixing things with gaffer tape and / or snip and tie. It would be wonderful to have someone to call on to help with small DIY tasks as and when they crop up.
