You’re Pride in London  

Pride in London means many things to many people, it belongs to our community and it belongs to you; come and join the conversation!

Pride in London has a renewed sense of purpose to highlight the challenges still facing the LGBT+ community today despite progress. We are run by a group of volunteers who are passionate about equality and diversity and are drawn from all walks of life. Pride aims to raise awareness of LGBT+ issues and campaign for the freedoms that will allow all of our community to live their lives on a genuinely equal footing. 

Around 200 people volunteer year-round to help us deliver what has become a world-class Pride. We welcome applications from everybody, and are especially keen to attract new volunteers from the BAME, Trans, Bi, Non-binary and Queer communities who we would love to see more widely represented in our organisation.

Your new team   

Pride in London is formed of a group of passionate individuals who give up their time to promote the campaigns, brand and products of Pride in London. Pride in London is known for its award-winning campaigns like #PrideMatters #nofilter, #freedomto and #lovehappenshere and our most recent campaign #YouMeUsWe.

Your new volunteer role

You'll come to Pride in London with a passion for LGBT+ rights and culture. This enthusiasm will help you generate mixed-media content that uplifts and supports Pride in London's diverse audience; while meeting internal communications goals.  

Interested?

Well, we need someone who has strong experience in producing mixed-media content for a wide range of channels, including websites, blogs, social media, podcasts, and email – which you can demonstrate in your portfolio. Overseeing content projects for a large organisation – you can spot a red-flag, off-brand design, or poorly chosen format in your sleep. Managing a similar multidisciplinary team; content editors and producers across videography, photography, and copywriting. You will need to be able to commit 8+ hours per week to volunteering for Pride in London. If you are all of those (or even a few of them), please get in touch.  

Who you are

This role requires someone with exceptional writing and researching skills, sound understanding of SEO best practices, CMS experience, Analytics, including website, blog and social media data. Knowledge of content and project management software Adobe Suite, Canva, Dotmailer, Trello.  

Everyone working with Pride in London is a volunteer, so this role requires someone that is independent enough to set their own schedule but enough of a team player to ensure that tasks meet the needs of key stakeholders, brand guidelines and milestones.

This role presents a great opportunity for the right person to get involved in a great event. The right person will bring an ability to collaborate, influence and negotiate with others. Strong organisational and project management skills. You’ll need a willingness and flexibility to work anti-social hours and attend meetings after-work/at weekends. Creativity and a passion for emerging technologies/trends and knack for spotting editorially relevant content and reactive opportunities (alongside the oomph to make them happen.)  

(Content production skills, Adobe suite, photography, videography, would also be great!)

  • A friendly and welcoming induction course and a variety of training that’s offered throughout the year 
  • An opportunity to get new and relevant professional experience

Our Culture

Our volunteers are driven and passionate about what they do. Putting on one of London's largest one-day events requires dedication and perseverance. 

Although a lot of our work is completed remotely, there will be plenty of opportunities to meet with your team and others throughout the year to not only plan what's ahead but to socialise too. 

We're looking for enthusiastic people to join the organisation so we can provide a platform for every part of London’s LGBT+ community.
