The William Morris Society: Opportunities to get involved

Posted on January 23, 2019

The William Morris Society seeks volunteers/potential trustees with skills in business development, financial management and communications.
The William Morris Society is a fellowship dedicated to promoting the appreciation of Morris’ life, work and ideas and their contemporary relevance. The charity runs a small museum in Morris’ former home close to Hammersmith Bridge and organises a regular programme of talks, events, learning activities and publications including a prestigious literary journal and a topical magazine.
We are currently looking for new volunteers/potential trustees to help develop the Society and its activities, seeking self-motivated individuals with business skills and experience to get involved with projects and committee work, including:

  • business development/ income generation;
  • general fundraising and application-writing;
  • charity accounting and business planning;
  • social media and digital marketing;
  • outreach and community relations.

Our trustees and volunteers cover a wide range of roles which are unpaid although travel costs to attend meetings are reimburseable. Working from home and outside normal business hours is encouraged for many of our roles; it is not necessary to live near us in Hammersmith although we encourage all volunteers to take an active part in our talks and events. If you are interested you can look at our volunteer charter here and find out more about what we do.
Please apply by sending a short profile of your skills and experience and your area of interest in William Morris’ multi-faceted life and works to .
