ContentEd is a content strategy conference for the education sector and is the first in Europe of its kind. Held in Bristol on 7-8 December, the event will see marketing and communications professionals from universities, colleges and schools learn about creating and managing content from leading international speakers through a series of talks and workshops.

We are looking to put together a team of volunteers who will work together with the event hosts, Pickle Jar Communications, to manage this exciting two-day event.

      Liaising with event staff from Pickle Jar Communications and the conference venue staff to ensure the conference runs smoothly

      Answering questions from delegates, speakers and sponsors


In return for your hard work at the conference, you’ll receive:

      A free two-day pass to ContentEd, with access to talks and workshops enabling you to gain insight into how content strategy is applied in the education sector

      Exclusive entry to the VIP speaker event on Sunday night

      A chance to make connections with delegates and speakers from across the globe

      An opportunity to meet and socialise with like-minded volunteers

      A complimentary two-course lunch and refreshments throughout the day
