Creative Writing Volunteer (unpaid)

We are looking for a self-motivated individual to work with the Communications Manager to produce articles which highlights and promotes DRCEF and our projects. The Creative Writer would also be responsible for creating a regular stream of articles and posts to keep the DRCEF content and social media updated. This is an excellent opportunity to gain experience working with professional staff in an enthusiastic organisation.


  • Part-time Volunteering: 10-12 hours/week

  • Time commitment: 12 weeks minimum

  • Paid travel and lunch expenses



Main Responsibilities:


  • Creating news articles and posts that promotes our activities and provide news of our causes.

  • Assist in building and maintaining strong relationships with foundations, organizations, and individual supporters

  • Assist with managing social media posts and interactions.


Desirable Attributes:


  • Previous article writing experience is preferred but not required

  • Candidate must demonstrate excellent writing and research skills

  • A background in journalism is preferred

  • Proficient in basic computer programs: MS Office Skills

  • Strong communication and organizational skills

  • Ability to work proactively within a team as well as independently

  • Self-starter, able to think creatively to solve problems



N.B. As we are a small organisation, candidates may also need to help with general tasks and administration when necessary. In terms of volunteering length and hours per week, we can be flexible for the right candidate but we are hoping for a weekly commitment of one day.


We offer volunteering with the intention that both we and the young people who take up these opportunities gain. As a small organisation, we sadly cannot pay our volunteers, although we offer travel expenses within London. However, having volunteered ourselves, we try to ensure that our volunteers have a meaningful and productive experience where they gain skills and experience. We also aim, when possible, to tailor their work to the areas that they wish to develop their skills in or use the talents that they have.
