      Looking to learn more about content strategy from sector leaders?

      Or do you want to add experience to your CV?

ContentEd is a content strategy conference for the education sector and is the first in Europe of its kind. Held in Edinburgh, 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 the exciting two-day event.

      Seeking feedback from delegates through hands-on research and survey analysis

      Helping with administration each day

      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, we can offer the following benefits to each volunteer:

      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

      Boost your CV with experience in event management, marketing, communications and administration

      Exclusive entry to the VIP speaker event on Wednesday night
