Challenge Wales employs a part time administrator, a part time youth worker and a business development manager to run the office. This includes managing bookings, marketing, PR, administration including managing bursary funding, funding bids, research, volunteer crew recruitment activity and presentations as well as running an outreach programme throughout Wales. To enable the charity to work more effectively shore-side volunteers provide essential support.
If you are wanting to get involved with fundraising for Challenge Wales you don’t need to be a volunteer to do that however, if you are wanting to take a more proactive part in fundraising as part of the Charity’s strategy and you have time to spend then volunteering might be a great opportunity for you. All volunteers need to have a DBS background check undertaken.
Shore-side volunteers need to be able to use their own initiative and with support from the office be able to start and finish a project.
We also like to be creative in our volunteering opportunities so if you have skills in the following we would be interested to hear from you:
- Vlogging, journalism and/or content development
- Social media (across several platforms) and blogging
- E-Commerce (to help manage and run our online shop)
