A Marketing Volunteer offers support across the charity for the important task of letting people know who A Way Out are and what we do. They communicate with as many people as possible sharing our message of love, hope and freedom.
It will involve working closely with the fundraising team, the CEO, and having the right voice, approach, information and style to reach different groups of people. Awareness of the charity can lead to financial returns, support and help us become more accessible.
There are all sorts of things we can do to encourage people to get involved, from social media presence to emails, newsletters and invitations to events. But how can we turn a twitter follower into a regular giver?
