Visitors from Fifth Day

Welcome to Reach Volunteering. We are a community and registered charity that connects people, skills and good causes.

To apply for this role, and any other on our platform, you need to be based in the UK, have at least three years of experience using the skills you wish to volunteer in a professional capacity or have lived experience (for trustee roles). Read more about our criteria.

We are a young, ambitious nature-focused social enterprise and have a basic website currently and need a talented web designer to give our website a serious makeover! An interest in nature, land or biodiversity would be help.

What will you be doing?

We are looking for an experienced and talented web designer to overhaul our website, bringing it to life and maximising the wealth of energy we believe our vision has - to help nature flourish! 

 

We consider this a short to medium term position however we are happy to be advised by the successful volunteer. The key objective is to provide a much stronger and dynamic website for our social enterprise. We have an evolving story to tell about our plans, our land partners, and our planned work across Scotland. We have a lot of potential images and words, but shaping that content and building an engaging website is not our strength! That’s why we need your help.

 

The staff, board, and our ecology partners are all available to support the design and build of the website, but the main working will be with our manager. Your expertise and guidance on where to host the website or technical aspects we don’t know about would be great. And we do have a desire to create a shopping app bolt on to help generate funds - this has been suggested to us by companies in interested in signing up.

What are we looking for?

Great experience of building and creating dynamic and purposeful websites, gain across a few years and a range of designs. Backroom web services and technical advice is needed, and knowledge and experience of app creation an advantage.

What difference will you make?

Your contribution - to energise our website - would be absolutely invaluable! We have spent our first year finding land partners and planning the ecological work that we will undertake on the sites we have. We feel now is the right time to shout about it, tell our story and enthuse people about Solas for Nature! 

 

The website will be a key tool in securing community and corporate support, as well as demonstrating to stakeholders and potential donors what we have achieved and are plans for the future. The main impact you will have is help us help nature! The more we can increase support, the more land we can rehabilitate.

 

Everyone involved with Solas is committed to enhancing biodiversity and improving local places for people and nature. We come from either the public or third sectors originally and will be reliant on your knowledge and expertise and creativity.

 

We believe we have a very positive story to tell and become engaged with - we just need your help connecting us to like-minded folk!
