Social Media Volunteer

Open Strings Music

Register your Interest

Open Strings Music (OSM) is Brighton and Hove’s specialist community music service for adults of all abilities. We are a social enterprise which has been running community music projects in the city and beyond since 2013. We offer participatory music as a tool for engagement in a variety of community-based settings: for mental health, with older people, with people with learning disabilities, and with people with dementia and their carers.

We are recruiting a volunteer to manage our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages: the primary tasks are increasing reach and adding new content, so that we can let more people know about our various projects and services.

We often work remotely so this volunteer will be required to work primarily from home, with mutually-agreed meetings with OSM staff. 


Particular requirements:


  • experienced in using social media
  • meeting deadlines
  • adhering to Open Strings Music’s personal data and privacy policy
  • being able to work with minimal supervision


  • having an interest in the work of Open Strings Music and the groups we work with
  • good communication skills


  • creating and implementing a social media strategy
  • working efficiently and adhering to timescales
  • liaising with OSM staff
  • attending briefing meetings (up to one per month)
  • adhering to OSM’s policies



Benefits to the volunteer

1: an opportunity to work within the rapidly-growing field of music for wellbeing

2: being part of a small and vibrant team working in the arts

3: having their skills highly appreciated!
