Volunteer Marketing Consultant

AMURT
Stoke Newington, London and remote working

Posted: 14 Jan 2022

Deadline: 28 Feb 2022

Compensation: Voluntary

Unpaid Volunteer Flexible hours


Job description

Are you a Marketing professional who would like to put your skills to use in a small charity enterprise and make a real difference? We are looking for someone who has experience of bringing new products to market to help us launch a new food enterprise. This will enable us to continue feeding the homeless and vulnerable in North London.

About AMURT UK

AMURT UK is a grassroots disaster relief and community development organisation. Our projects focus on food poverty, food waste and healthy eating. We produce and distribute hot meals and protein dense snacks to the homeless and other vulnerable communities in London. Services are run almost exclusively by volunteers. We also run Food For All health food shop and herbal dispensary, a trading company that donates its profits back to AMURT UK.

The project

We have developed a raw protein and nutrient dense snack that we give out to the homeless and those who are experiencing food poverty in North London. These snacks are delicious, healthy and supporting homeless people and people currently facing food insecurity. We are going to start selling them to the public to make this charitable activity self-sustainable and have won some investment to help us move forward with our plan. For every two snacks sold another will be given to a vulnerable person. This is a new enterprise for us.

What you will be doing

The successful candidate would work alongside a small, dedicated team and be responsible for:

  • Help build on the narrative of our enterprise for marketing efforts
  • Help develop a clear and consistent content strategy that proactively allows the enterprise to own its narrative
  • Help develop effective advertising campaigns using limited resources
  • Using skills and experience to help devise a strategy to market the product

What we are looking for?

Ideally, the successful candidate will have the following experience:

  • Experience of marketing
  • Experience in developing and executing fully integrated marketing and communications plans
  • Experience of bringing a new food product to market is a plus

Time

We are looking for someone who is able to commit to seeing this project through. We imagine it would be a few hours a week over some months. As the enterprise develops it would be desirable to have someone who can provide ad hoc ongoing support but this is not a requirement.

Place

Our office at 3a Cazenove Road, N16 6PA and online. We expect a lot of it to be able to be done remotely but it would be helpful for the successful candidate to be able to visit the project and meet the team occasionally in person.

Application information

Please apply via our Amurt website.

You may also contact the volunteer coordinator through the following email address volunteers@amurt.org.uk, but we will still ask you to do an application via our website.
