York Mumbler is the go-to place for families in York. The website is visited over 20,000 times per month and our facebook group has almost 19,000 members.
We get a huge number of enquiries every week from local people and businesses who want to work with York Mumbler and we want to make sure we are giving everyone a high quality level of service.
I’m looking for people who are passionate about Mumbler and want to join the team!
We are recruiting for various volunteers to help admin the facebook group and also 1 person to work with Emily on the advertising side of the business which will be a paid role.
Sales / Advertising role:
The ideal candidate will be someone with high levels of confidence and great communications skills, as well as being really organised. You need to be good with detail and take pride in doing a job well. You’ll be required to give really high quality responses to advertising enquiries & have the ability to think about other people’s needs for their organisation. Sales experience would be great but it’s not essential… it’s not about cold calling (we never do this) but it’s about responding to organisations well and ensuring the promotion on Mumbler is right for them.
The details of the role (hours, pay, location etc) are to be confirmed as it will be dependant on the skills and lifestyle requirements of the successful applicant (The hours can work around your own childcare needs… school hours, flexible etc) but it will be broadly 12 hours per week and likely to be around the living wage pay on a sub-contract basis.
90% of what we do on Mumbler is free of charge and I want to keep it that way. It’s free for people to use both the website and the Facebook group and most businesses can have a free listing somewhere on the website as long as there is a relevant area. This takes a lot of time and upkeep so I’m looking for volunteers to help with the running of the facebook group and the website.
The details of the volunteer roles can be altered based on the applicants own personal passion areas and experience. Anything can be taught but I want to hear from people who love mumbler and want to make life easier for parents in York.
Working and volunteering for Mumbler would suit someone wanting to combine work with bringing up children in York and with a passion for making family life easier.
