Manchester Digital Champion (Face to Face only)
Manchester City Counciil's Digital Inclusion Team needs you! We are looking for the next generation of Digital Champions.
Manchester is home to a vibrant and thriving digital sector that plays an increasingly important role in the success of our city by providing opportunities for our residents and attracting investment that drives sustainable growth.
Manchester City Council’s Digital Inclusion Team needs you! We are looking for the next generation of Digital Champions.
Digitally excluded people in Manchester are unable do things that many of us take for granted, so we will put you in contact with community centers and/or libraries in Manchester who may ask you to teach their clients basic skills, as well as attending digital skills drop-ins. Because of you, we will be able to help create and grow digitally confident communities in Manchester.
Skills You'll Need
You do not need to be a technical genius to excel in this role, although some digital capability is preferred. You definitely need to be patient as you’ll need to be able to listen to people explain their digital issues, support them accordingly and boost their confidence. We welcome applications from bilingual and multilingual speakers! Travel will be required to reach certain areas where volunteering sessions and digital skills drop-ins are taking place. If travel costs prevent would prevent you from volunteering, we may be able to help cover some expenses.
Perks and Benefits
Access to a community of like-minded Digital Champions. The opportunity to go out into Manchester communities and help people directly. We may also be able to set up some volunteer meetings and events! Some of our Digital Champions have even used their volunteering experience to find training and employment opportunities, we’d be more than happy to provide a reference for any future applications.
