Brighton and Hove Volunteer SearchDetails of Opportunity

Website support with Open Strings Music

All Areas

About this volunteering opportunity

We are recruiting a volunteer to maintain our website (; the primary task is adding new content, which will be provided by us on a monthly basis. The website has been created in WordPress, and the new content includes videos and new sections. There are several blocks of content to be added to the website in the first instance, which we envisage will take between three and four hours to complete. When these are completed, the time commitment should generally be one hour per month.

We are based at Community Base and often work remotely so this volunteer will usually be required to work from home, with mutually-agreed informal meetings with OSM staff.

This volunteering role is an opportunity for anyone interested in supporting our work and the rapidly-growing field of music for wellbeing.
