Digital strategy and social media

Our fundraising and communications team would like someone to join them who can take and lead and focus on our digital strategy and implementation of social media.

We need one person who understands how to create a digital strategy and a second volunteer who can help to implement the strategy.  We need people who are regularly using social media and understand how to create integrated targeted campaigns. You maybe a recent graduate in digital marketing and looking for a first project or you may come from a professional background and are willing to take your expertise into our existing team to train and coach.

You will be joining an enthusiastic group of volunteers committed to the success of Bees Abroad.  An understanding of digital media with the ability to write content appropriate for international development and fundraising would be ideal.

Interested? contact richard_ridler@beesabroad.org.uk

Corporate Sponsorship

We would like to expand our fundraising and communications team to include someone who can focus on gaining support from corporate sponsors. The role will involve identifying organisations likely to be sympathetic to our work and persuading them to support us. Corporate sponsorship is a new area of fundraising for Bees Abroad and one we think has potential to become a significant part of our income.

You will be joining an enthusiastic group of volunteers committed to the success of Bees Abroad. Many of us are beekeepers but it is not a requirement.

Interested? Please email our chairman richard_ridler@beesabroad.org.uk or phone 01799 218023 to find out more.
