To further support the excellent work of the Basingstoke canal society and to increase both the awareness of and the involvement with the local communities we have several areas of work we need volunteers for:

1. Press, Media and marketing support,

A key role in the future of the canal.  It is essential that we raise the profile of the canal and ensure that we get the local community, along the entire length involved. Accordingly we need support from people with press liaison, marketing or promotional skills. This can be very flexible and again will be working as part of a bigger team. Specifically we also need marketing and press support to promote our boat trips

2. Building links with Local Councils,

We need to work closely with both the County Council (Surrey & Hampshire) owners of the canal to help them get the best use out of the canal for both residents and users of this wonderful asset. We have a team already linked into the councils but there is always more to do

3. Building links with Schools and Business,

We would like to build stronger links with all the local Schools to help educate our youngsters and expose them to wonderful world of the canal and its’ heritage, nature and health benefits.

Alongside this we also see a real opportunity to involve local businesses in supporting the canal with a benefit to all concerned.


So if you are interested in helping us build these key relationships, have ideas, and would like to be a valued part of these teams please register an interest in all or part of this opportunity.


What skills do I need?

We are looking for people with excellent communication skills and 'Can Do' attitude. 

Volunteering is a very important part of how the Canal is run and maintained, and really makes a difference. Not only that:

- It’s fun

- It’s a great way to meet new people

- You learn new skills

- You feel good giving back to the community

- It’s interesting to learn about the canal, nature and conservation

- It’s a great way to keep fit and active or just to get you out of the house and get some fresh air.

Location

This opportunity can be carried out whilst working from home.
