We are looking for people to take on the role of communication officer for each of the action groups currently running busy campaigns; Transport, Local Shops & Food and Energy & Climate Change. This will enable each group to communicate what they are doing, what action needs to be taken to support campaigns and news of upcoming events more successfully both internally and externally. It will also involve ensuring press releases are written to engage media interest with our campaigns events.

The time commitment would allow someone to easily fit the role around a full-time job, but you should be prepared to attend 1 or 2 meetings a month (Monday evenings), write articles for our bi-monthly newsletter, website and blog and possibly help with material for the show which we are planning to put out on Rhubarb Radio.

If you feel you have the skills to do this or have the enthusiasm to learn them given appropriate training (which is available), please contact joe@birminghamfoe.org.uk for more details.
