Communications volunteer vacancy

We are looking for a volunteer to help with online communications for this new network:

Details about the creation of the network are included in other sections of this website, but as the majority of communication between members will be web-based we need to find effective ways of sharing information and promoting the network.

Tasks that have already been identified include:

  • developing this WordPress website
  • updating information and, as research is added, creating ways of making information accessible and searchable database
  • assist with other web-based sharing of information e.g. blogs, group emails
  • potentially design work e.g. a logo for the network

We are looking for someone with advanced computing skills, experience of developing websites and an interest in helping to promote this small heritage network. Any knowledge of European languages would be useful but not essential.

For further information or to arrange a time to discuss this role please email Lucy: lhockley@tcct.org.uk
