Volunteer as a publicity officer

Have you heard of Marriage Care? Would you think of calling us if you needed help with a relationship problem? If your answer to both of these is NO, then you will know why we need you!

Marriage Care is a national charity which operates at local centres to support couple relationships by offering marriage preparation services to help couples start out on the right track, and relationship counselling to help at times of difficulty. Many of our centres are looking for people to help them become better known.

As publicity officer, your key tasks will be to build and maintain relationships with local priests, organisations and the local press as well as to organise and run community outreach events. If you are enthusiastic, outgoing and possess good communication skills you could be just who we are looking for to help us reach more people with our services  and volunteering opportunities!

In most cases our centers are virtual with centre members working from home, communicating via email and phone. Services are run in community premises and centre meetings are held in mutually convenient places. You would be working with your local centre team which comprises a team of counsellors and marriage preparation trainers, supported by a head of centre and usually a small admin team.
