About the Organisation

The Scottish Fair Trade Forum is the national membership network working to promote Fair Trade and to embed the values of equality and fairness in all aspects of Scottish society.

Role and Responsibilities

There are two volunteering roles available. 

Campaigns and Communications Volunteer
 The overall aim of this role is to provide support for the Forum’s current campaigns and general communication work. There is an administrative and organisational element to this role. The role will support the Forum in its campaign work and communicating key messages through a variety of media. This may include assisting with the preparation of the Forum’s newsletter, updating the Forum’s website and social media and assisting in the organisation of events.

Public Affairs Volunteer
The overall aim of this role is to provide support for the Forum’s public affairs work. This will involve assisting the Director in promoting the work of the Forum to MSPs, MPs, MEPs, councillors, Scottish Government, UK Government in Scotland, local authorities, public agencies, voluntary sector organisations and businesses, and liaising with the Cross Party Group on Fair Trade in the Scottish Parliament. In-depth knowledge of Fair Trade issues is not essential but is desirable.

Person Specification

For both roles, we are looking for supporters of Fair Trade who are interested in assisting the work of the national network organisation. Previous in-depth knowledge of Fair Trade is desirable but not essential.
