Rhythms of the World is a true community organisation, powered by the generous support of hundreds of volunteers from the North Hertfordshire area.
As Rhythms of the World looks to rebuild for 2020, volunteers are vitally important in ensuring the charity can continue to support our core aims of celebrating inclusivity and diversity in the local community. If you want to support RotW in any way we encourage you to get in touch.
We are looking for:
Social Media Coordinators
We are looking for enthusiastic, motivated volunteers to assist the Social Media Manager in maintaining a consistent, engaging and informative festival voice across our various social media platforms. We especially need people with a good working knowledge of LinkedIn and Instagram and the role will involve some work with FaceBook and Twitter. Some knowledge of WordPress would be an advantage but not essential.
We are looking for someone to coordinate fundraising events outside of the festival weekend, e.g. quiz nights, gigs and pub-based mini-festivals (approx. 6 events a year). As well as creating and organising the events, you will liaise with group heads to ensure that teams are in place to shake buckets and provide information. You should be able to motivate a team of volunteers and possess financial awareness, in order to ensure the events are profit-making.
We are on the look out for a fantastic volunteer copywriter to join our PR sub team. You will assist with the writing of press releases to help publicise Rhythms of the World in the local and national press. There may be some occasions where you need to interview performers and other people involved with the festival.
You will be working as part of the Communications team, reporting to the Head of Comms and PR team sub leader, but also working closely with the social media team and the advertising team to ensure that all comms are aligned.
The role varies in terms of workload. We usually need no more than one press release to be written each week, but there are times where deadlines can be quite tight.
If this is a role that you would be interested in, we would love to hear from you.
We are looking for one or more motivated graphic designers with experience of designing for both print and web with good knowledge of Adobe software, specifically InDesign, Photoshop and/or Illustrator. You’ll get involved in designing adverts, publicity materials and merchandise to promote the festival and its activities in the community.
Advertising and Sponsorship Assistants
Advertising and Sponsorship form a key part of the revenue of RotW and help keep ticket prices low. We need a team of people to work with the Advertising and Sponsorship Coordinators to help attract and sign up advertisers and sponsors. This role would be perfect for someone who can only spare a little time but is keen to use sales and influencing skills for the benefit of RotW.
Community Arts Coordinator
We are looking for a new community arts coordinator to encourage and help local community groups to produce artwork and projects for the festival throughout the year. They will also work with our decoration team to display this artwork on site at the festival itself.
Duties and responsibilities:
- Liaising and working with community groups in the local area
- Helping to design projects for groups to participate in
- Managing how the pieces will be displayed at the festival
