Volunteer Positions

Volunteering opportunities at Ethical Consumer's Manchester office

We are always happy to hear from anyone who would like to volunteer for us.

Due to the nature of the work here, we ask for the following as a minimum commitment:
- one day per week over a six month period (or equivalent)
- must be based in our Manchester office

We are currently unable to support full-time internships or work experience.

We are a co-operatively run organisation so we share all tasks between us.
The work would consist of a range of different tasks including admin, research and maybe writing some small pieces for the magazine.

If you have specific skills that you would like to volunteer (such as research, design, marketing or photography), please highlight this in your application, or contact us directly.

Our office is in Manchester in the UK. We are only able to make a contribution of up to £10 per day towards transport costs and lunch expenses.

For further information please read our Volunteer Policy (pdf).
