Volunteer required to pull together the second edition of a small directory of UK organisations (about 30) supporting male victims of domestic abuse. Information about the first edition can be found at: http://www.mankind.org.uk/oakbook.html
The work is fully desk-based and the volunteer would expect to be undertaking this work at 'home' in their 'spare time'. It is not an all-consuming project and there is a clear briefing and questionnaires etc already in place.
The main requirements are for someone to be organised and willing to see the project through. The successful person will be making a real difference to men (and their children) who need support.
The role being advertised is a voluntary one. As such, there are no set hours and responsibilities and you should be free to come and go as you wish. If the post demands set hours and/or has a specific job description you may be deemed to be a ‘worker’ and be covered by National Minimum Wage legislation.

In May 2012 the House of Commons Library revised their Standard Note ‘National Minimum Wage and Volunteers’ and it can be seen here: www.parliament.uk/briefing-papers/SN00697
