- Closing date:
- Salary: unpaid
- Contract type: Fixed term
- Working hours: Flexible

Your design skills, excellent attention to detail and a systematic approach to migrating large amounts of content will be essential to ensuring our new website is accessible and impactful, promoting the benefits of healthy peatlands to a national audience.
As a Communications Volunteer, you will use your passion for digital communication to support our website migration, providing new and existing users with an improved experience and helping maximise our impact in communicating the value of UK peatlands. You will support the Communications Lead in migrating content from our existing website to a new platform, as well as adding additional images to better illustrate new and migrated content. There may also be an opportunity to help with other communications tasks, such as content design, creating social media posts for our LinkedIn and X channels and supporting our event planning. You will need good communication skills, excellent attention to detail and a pro-active attitude to ensure our web content is accurate and consistent.
The IUCN UK Peatland Programme team all work remotely so we are looking for someone who has reliable internet access, is computer literate and comfortable working independently with online support. Ideally you will have some knowledge of website content management systems, especially Drupal, but training will be provided. You will also need access to your own desktop computer or laptop with up-to-date Windows and anti-virus software.
This role will suit somebody who is passionate about UK conservation and habitat restoration, and is a great opportunity for someone interested in digital communications and engagement to gain professional experience in the conservation sector with a well-known and highly respected organisation. You will learn a great deal about peatlands and associated issues in contemporary conservation and habitat restoration, and how to communicate this information to a wide audience.
