We've had this note from the Parkrun head office about an upcoming role:
The parkrun Ambassador programme was created in 2013 as a national support network of highly engaged and dedicated volunteers who were keen to be involved with parkrun outside of the delivery of our weekly events.
We are looking to recruit an Outreach Ambassador to join a small team of volunteers throughout the UK to provide advice, support and expertise to parkrun on topics related to social deprivation. Outreach Ambassadors contribute to the work of parkrun UK's Health & Wellbeing Team and assist us in the delivery of the Sport England funded project which is focused on engaging lower socio-economic communities in parkrun events.
The role involves:
- Identifying opportunities to promote parkrun and junior parkrun amongst socially deprived communities in South West England
- Proactively building relationships with relevant individuals / organisations
- Supporting the work of parkrun staff and volunteers by sharing your experiences
