Role Profile

Are you a driven and highly motivated individual who loves being part of a team and helping others? Are you comfortable using technology and looking for a home-based volunteering opportunity? If so, this could be a great fit for you!

The Opportunity

Our social mission is to help anyone in the UK facing crisis to get the support they need, when they need it. We do this by crowdsourcing, reviewing and sharing national support options and inspiring stories.

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of our Cohort 2 Volunteer Team. Over a four month period, you will be able to apply your skills and work with others to further this non-profit initiative and help lay the foundations to make a difference to millions of people’s lives.

About Us

We are passionate about making it easy to find support by providing a platform to share knowledge of support resources and help others. Our vision is to see that no-one struggles alone or is left behind, regardless of their situation or life circumstances.

Our aims are to help anyone facing personal crisis in the UK to:

  • – Find support
  • – Feel more resilient

  • – Feel better connected and less isolated

With the help of our existing volunteer network across the UK, there are over 1,750 different services listed on mypickle.org.
