Help us develop discussion forums within our existing network site so that we can involve our members in the development of strategies.

What will you be doing?

Our charity is working to help bring about a step change in the battle against litter. We are developing an interest-based network which combines content curation with discussion forums to enable members to keep up with current trends and contribute their ideas about litter and plastic pollution.

We are urgently looking for an experienced web practitioner to help us develop and execute discussion forums around up to six prescribed themes.

You will be working with one of our trustees who will provide any background material you will need.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for a volunteer who:

  • Has a basic understanding of climate issues
  • Has experience of preparing materials for web
  • Has experience of website builders, preferably Wix
  • Has experience of working within a brand identity and developing design based on existing materials.
  • Has the ability to quickly understand the needs of our team / organisation / users
  • Can ask key questions to enable us to clarify requirements
  • Understands the resource constraints of a small charity and can work within these.


What difference will you make?

With your help will broaden our grasp and understanding of current technology and be able to continue to open new channels for engaging with our audience and members.

What's in it for the volunteer?

You would become part of our small, friendly team, using your time to make a real difference in difficult times and to contribute your ideas to help solve one of today’s pressing environmental challenges.
