Left Foot Forward is appealing for volunteers to support our journalism, political research and campaigning while gaining valuable experience with an organisation at the cutting edge of political reporting and new media.
Based in our busy London office, this is an exciting and varied role for someone with knowledge of UK current affairs and a commitment to centre-left progressive values.
Activities are likely to include:
- Developing new content and campaigns in response to social media and breaking news.
- Working with our network of contributors, including editing submitted material.
- Operating our web content management system and social media accounts.
While this position is based in our London office, we plan to advertise out-of-office remote working voluntary roles in January 2013.
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
