Liverpool Pride is a registered charity which organises an annual festival and different community events throughout the year which supports and involves lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. We are an entirely volunteer-led organisation and volunteers are at the centre of everything we do. In August 2010, 21,000 people attended the inaugural Liverpool Pride festival and since then we have an average of 65,000 people joining the festival every year! This means there’s plenty of great opportunities to get involved, develop your skills and learn new ones.
We have some specific roles to fill to help us deliver our work all year round, not just at the annual festival.
Some of the roles we have at present are:
We are seeking motivated, self-starters to join our successful Fundraising Team, working alongside our regular Pop-Up Shops at various events and on the Gay Scene in Liverpool. We currently have an active team of fundraisers working on everything from shaking buckets, packing bags at local supermarkets, selling raffle tickets to writing funding bids and arranging sponsorship and we would like to add more people to this diverse group of volunteers.
WordPress Website Designer:
We are looking for a Volunteer to help keep our website up to date with information, photos, sales items, events etc. If you have experience and can produce a portfolio of previous website designs, we would love to hear from you. To discuss this role in more detail, please do get in touch.
We are looking for an experienced Graphic Designer with creative flair, to help us with flyers, posters and promotional material for our future fundraising events. We would love the opportunity to discuss this role with potential volunteers in more depth, please get in touch.
DJ’s & Music Artists:
We are looking for DJ’s and artists, particularly female DJ’s to help with our Club and Music event plans throughout the year. To discuss this role in more detail, please do get in touch.
We are looking for support in writing various articles and help with written promotional material. The ideal person, will have a creative flair and be able to enhance our basic ideas to make them flourish.
Pride At The Pictures – Film Programme and Website:
Pride at the Pictures is growing and needs so more film enthusiasts to come on board. We need people to help programme, present and write about the films we show.
Join the team and help shape Liverpool Pride this year and into the future!
Finally, a huge thank you to our current volunteers, some of whom have been in the team since the beginning in 2010 – nothing could happen without them!
