Do you have good writing skills? Can you lend us hand?
Dublin Cycling Campaign is (we think!) one of the busiest advocacy organisations in the capital. We are campaigning across multiple levels on a daily basis to represent the needs of everyday cyclists - and indeed those who would love to cycle but are currently too scared to because of the city’s hostile traffic environment. And as many people find hard to believe, all of this happens on a 100% voluntary basis! Take a bow all of our super volunteers!
We are currently looking for a hand penning articles for our website and newsletter, and indeed with drafting other letters. Very often we find ourselves so busy preparing for and attending meetings, examining technical documents, running all sorts of events and doing other campaigning jobs, that we don’t get the time to prepare regular good quality content for the website.
If you like what we do in the Campaign, broadly agree with our main demands (summarised here) and have good writing skills, then we would love to hear from you. We are really looking for someone who can pen a few well-crafted articles each month, drawing on the terrific work carried out by our other volunteers. In a nutshell, we’d like our website to better reflect much of our work that goes on behind the scenes. In case you are not already familiar with it, this chart shows how we are organised - it should give you a sense of our main spheres of activity.
The ideal person would connect in closely electronically with a number of our core volunteers and help the Campaign publicize the work we do and the issues we are working on. We would particularly love to hear from someone who has mastered the crafts of writing and editing! Email us on info[at]dublincycling.ie if you can help out, ideally including examples of what you have previously written.
