Student Volunteering Opportunities

Opportunities with SCM

There are lots of ways that you can support the movement through volunteering. Read on for more information! 

Join the Movement magazine editorial group – Do you have an interest in journalism, or an idea for the next theme of Movement magazine? Are you a keen writer, or just curious about what goes in to publishing a magazine? We’re looking for a team of students to help plan content, commission articles and conduct interviews for future issues. To find out more email the Editor.

Help us plan an event – Want to have your voice heard in how we run our future events, and get some practical experience in how to plan, prepare, run and evaluate the variety of events SCM runs throughout the year? Maybe you'd like to host an event for students in your area, or would like to get involved in planning our national gathering? Join our events team! We’re looking for students to help plan the programmes for our events, act as hosts and to lead worship at gatherings. Contact the office to sign up!

Spread the word about SCM - Fancy spending some of your time at festivals and events talking to people about how great SCM is? We're looking for volunteers to help spread the SCM joy at festivals and conferences across the year. If you're interested, get in touch with Lisa for more information.

Help out in the SCM office - Are you looking to give something back to your community, or to develop new skills? We're always looking for volunteers to help out in the SCM office, particularly to help out with administrative tasks and keeping the website up to date. If you have some spare time and would like to help out behind the scenes, please contact Lisa - full training and support will be provided, and all expenses will be covered.


Opportunities with other organisations

Iona Community

Volunteering on Iona is a great way to put faith into action. Each week at Iona Abbey we welcome guests into our community life - we share in a common life including shared meals and worship. There are a range of roles available across all areas - housekeeping, kitchen, maintenance, shop, admin, sacristy, musician, or general assistant.

The volunteer roles are available from March until the autumn. The dates for volunteering are flexible so they can easily fit within university term time.

All will work together to share their common life with guests and visitors, and provide the building of community that the Iona Community is renowned for. The 2022 team will have a unique opportunity to draw on the fine traditions of the past and at the same time explore how the upgraded facilities can further enhance the Community’s ministry of renewal of worship and inclusive hospitality.
