Indian Futures

Register your Interest

  • Promote the work of Indian Futures, particularly our belief in quality education and what we understand by it, by contacting potential supporters, partners and/or donors/funders;
  • Visit potential partner businesses, such as local shops and Indian restaurants. This may include handing out our promotional literature. During the visit/meeting our social media may also be mentioned, such as website address, Facebook/Instagram/Twitter accounts, etc;
  • Plan, design, organise and run fundraising events;
  • Alongside the media coordinator volunteer, create promotional literature for every event (such as posters or flyers) and advertise them on all our social media;
  • Carry out the necessary tasks after every event, such as collecting and storing all used material, thanking supporters and donors, informing supporters of how the event went, etc;
  • Help other volunteers with their own tasks;
  • Represent the values of Indian Futures and promote our aims at all times.

Skills

We are looking for a dynamic, enthusiastic and creative person who can work to their own initiative but also as part of a small team. We would like for our events organiser to have some experience organising events, whether in the voluntary or business sector. However, we can also induct and train someone with no experience as long as they believe in our cause and have the desire to learn new skills. We expect a certain level of flexibility around hours. 4-6 hours a week should suffice but please be aware most events would take place at weekends and in the evenings and we would expect our events organiser to be available to attend them.

Benefits

  • Learn new or put old events organising skills to practice;
  • Be part of a dynamic team and help a very new charity grow. As we are such a small group of volunteers, there is a lot of scope for trialling new ideas and expressing one's own creativity!
  • Learn about Tamil culture and contribute towards the development of disadvantaged communities in South India.

Practical Considerations

We expect our events organiser to work on their own most of the time but to report to the two volunteers' coordinators, Tom and Anna, on a weekly basis to update them on their weekly work. This can be done in person or by email.

We promote a culture of ongoing communication between all volunteers and efficient project coordination and management. Our volunteers meet at least once a month in a central location of Brighton, either at the charity's registered address or at a local cafe. Our events organiser is expected to attend these meetings too. 

When do I need to be available?

Details The availability will depend very much on each particular event but most events take place in the evenings or at weekends. All volunteers also meet monthly on a Friday afternoon or evening at a central location in Brighton.
