Current Volunteer opportunities

Senior Editor – e-Journal

Asfar is recruiting a new Senior Editor to manage and publish our e-Journal.

Asfar’s e-Journal editorial team is currently seeking a 2nd Senior Editor, to work alongside our current Senior Editor in order to ensure the development and management of our Editorial Team and future editions of the Asfar e-Journal.

The Senior Editor is responsible for the overall management and publication of the e-Journal. Furthermore, the Senior Editor identifies, recruits and manages Regional Editors in their development and activities in ensuring there is enough articles/contributions for each edition of the e-Journal.

In-turn, the Senior Editor ensures that the Regional Editors are supporting contributors in developing their submissions and also support contributions to develop new skills and promoting transnational learning opportunities, both that Asfar offer and wider NGOs, including our partners’ offer which may support their future careers.

Alongside the editorial work, the Senior Editor is responsible for the successful promotion of the e-Journal on social media and through wider communication activities.

Asfar is keen to ensure the sustainability of the e-Journal and welcomes volunteers who can commit up to 10 hours per month, and offer innovative development solutions.

To be considered, please email your CV to info@asfar.org.uk with the heading Senior Editor and explain why you would like to be considered.
As this is a digital volunteering opportunity, Asfar welcomes applicants from outside the United Kingdom.
