Communications Support Volunteer

The next 12 months are particularly exciting for British Ice Skating. As we build up our membership base, recovering from the pandemic, it is imperative that now, more than ever, we maintain engagement with our members whilst also preparing for our upcoming projects in the sport.

Ice skating is a sport that currently receives no core funding, so we rely on our membership fees, coach licences, test fees and merchandise sales to fund the sport which means we rely very heavily on volunteers to support us and keep the sport going!

Currently we are looking for someone to support our Communications Lead with our social media content and community engagement content.

If you have a keen interest in marketing and communications, please contact us by emailing!

Main responsibilities would include:

Website and social media support

  • Create content for social media platforms (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn), including graphics and videos

  • Support with updating the BIS website, including creation of new blogs

  • Monitor website and social media analytics

  • Support with design and content of newsletters


  • Support the BIS team to produce informational and promotional materials for the BIS network

  • Support the creation of new resources for BIS campaigns

Other tasks

  • General admin and other support activities

We are looking for a commitment of around 4-6 hours per week for 6 months. Remote working is an option.

Our commitment to volunteers:

  • Valuable experience working in the sporting sector

  • Opportunities to gain ‘on the ground’ experience at major BIS events

  • 1-1 support from line manager

  • Ability to shape the role to your interests

  • Professional references

  • Reasonable travel and lunch expenses (where relevant if required)
