Jnetics currently relies on just two members of staff with some occasional support from two freelancers, to progress the activities of the charity and manage its day-to-day administration. Although greatly supported by our board of trustees and expert scientific and medical advisory committee, additional hands-on assistance could very much help us to achieve our objectives more quickly.
If you have any time available and would be interested in lending your expertise to Jnetics, we would be delighted to discuss the following volunteering options with you.
Jnetics associates are individuals with a variety of valuable skills who volunteer their time on an on-going basis to help further the objectives of the charity. Associates each contribute in a different way - varying in the expertise they provide and the time they have available to give.
To effectively develop and implement our planned services, we will need to consult with experts across a wide range of disciplines. Current associates include people with expertise in social media, marketing, project management and education.
If you have experience that you feel could contribute to the work of Jnetics e.g. in fundraising, community education, healthcare, publishing, database management, administration, lobbying, PR etc., please get in contact to explore the possibility of becoming a Jnetics associate.
If you are not able to offer your time or expertise in an on-going capacity but are interested in supporting a particular project, we would be happy to receive any help that you can offer.
Please let us know if there is a project that particularly fits your expertise; that you have a special interest in fundraising for; or if you simply have some time available to help us with the administrative aspects of project delivery.
