One of AMURT’s great strengths is its people. Its people are concerned citizens attracted by the AMURT principle that compassion for everyone and everything is the starting point of relief and development. Many are full-time volunteers who provide thousands of hours of volunteer time to keep our administrative costs low. Contact us if you wish to know more about our volunteer placements.

AMURT Volunteer Brand Strategist and Marketing Consultant
Are you a Branding and/or 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.
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 the vulnerable. We would like to start selling them to the public to make this charitable activity self-sustainable. For every snack 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:
Building the narrative of our project for marketing efforts by finding its most marketable identity/story and telling it through the branding and digital strategy
Helping develop clear and consistent content strategy that proactively allows AMURT to own its narrative
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 brand marketing
Experience in developing and executing fully integrated marketing and communications plans
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.
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.
Any questions – please email Natasha at email@example.com or call 020 8806 4250 (Tue, Wed)
