JOBS & VOLUNTEERING

Everyone who works for Wen has real responsibility and an equal voice within the organisation. You will enjoy a varied work experience, and we always encourage our volunteers to set and meet their personal development goals.

Previous Wen volunteers have gone on to paid jobs at organisations such as Sustain, Women’s Aid and Greenpeace.

“In an organisation of this size there is real scope to exercise initiative and make significant contributions to Wen’s aims. The team are always receptive to new ideas and supportive to volunteers, who are treated as valued and vital. I was able to build my skill set without compromising on ethics, which was really important to me.”

Georgie Johnson, Media & Communications Volunteer, 2014

We currently have the following opportunities.

ENVIRONMENSTRUAL AMBASSADOR

London & Bristol Free Training

Wen has developed educational modules based on the Environmenstrual Workshop Programme and we are excited to be able to offer training to 50 ambassadors to roll out this programme across the UK. WHO DO WE TRAIN? Individuals who would like to get the word out in their communities about Environmenstrual and #Plasticfreeperiods. This is a volunteer opportunity. We will provide a small stipend to cover travel expenses for the delivery of workshops.
WHAT’S COVERED? The training programme will equip Environmenstrual Ambassadors with the tools necessary to enable young people and adults to have access to all the information they need to make informed choices about which menstrual products to use. We explore the pros and cons of disposable and reusable menstrual products and build period confidence with our interactive activities. Participants will be encouraged to think critically about the environmental and health impacts of menstrual products.
LONDON – Thursday, 30th January 2020  9:30 am to 4:30 pm BRISTOL – Wednesday, 5th February 2020 9:30 am to 4:30 pm

SOIL SISTERS GARDEN VOLUNTEER

East London Volunteer

Wen are recruiting volunteers to support our exciting three year ‘Soil Sisters’ project delivering weekly social and therapeutic horticulture (STH) sessions at 5 women’s refuges across East London. Funded by BIG Lottery Reaching Communities, Wen are working with Ashiana Network and Hestia to support women to improve wellbeing, raise aspirations, build confidence and develop skills. You don’t have to be an expert gardener! We want creative people with a can-do attitude and a love of nature, who will bring their own skills and interests to shape the project develop beautiful gardens.
The gardens are small spaces so will use a range of nature inspired ‘green care’ activities that might also include cooking, crafts, and trips. So it’s a good environment to learn about what it takes to be a therapeutic gardener. Keen to get started!? Email beth@wen.org.uk with a CV and a cover letter outlining how you how you meet the role description and why you are interested in this position.
