Media Lead

Our Operations Team is growing and needs your help! With the support of a dedicated volunteer we can highlight the great work being done at Feeling Strong and make sure our message is being heard by those who need it most.

The Details

Feeling Strong is an exciting new Dundee based charity with the ambition to improve the lives of young people living with mental health conditions by fostering the skills, confidence and aspirations they need to flourish. We deliver services and activity in the community to provide opportunities for our service users in the areas of lobbying, skills development and service co-production.

We are at an early stage of development, but have received start-up funding and are delivering two projects on behalf of young people with mental health issues in Dundee. We have two more projects ready to start pending funding. Feeling Strong is committed to treating volunteers fairly, and will be seeking Volunteer Friendly Award accreditation at the earliest opportunity.

Your Commitment

In this role you are asked to provide assistance with the social media channels and press profile of Feeling Strong, including helping to source or create content and press releases for circulation. This is done remotely and at your own pace, when you can spare time to be involved, however we are looking for committed individuals. Also, as a member of the Operations Team, you may be asked to help with the organisation of the charities' other activities on occasion. The Operations Team meet 6 times a year, for hour long meetings, rotating between the days of the week.

Any travels costs will be reimbursed.

Applying

Basic training and a volunteer induction will be provided, but we would particularly welcome volunteers with skills in Communications, Marketing, Social Media, Press Work and Copy Writing. We would also encourage candidates who have either lived experience of mental health conditions, are the parent of a young person with mental health conditions or are a young person who have lived experience of mental health conditions to apply.
