Role: Marketing Team Volunteer

We are looking for enthusiastic, creative and motivated individuals to join our team. Previous experience in graphic design and marketing is a bonus but not essential. The successful candidate will be involved in daily design, branding and background marketing tasks. A good-eye for design and demonstrated flexibility are a must.

Why should you volunteer with UKSEDS?

Joining UKSEDS is the best way to get involved in the space sector as a student.

If at any point, for any reason, you can’t do the role, that’s fine. We are students too, and we appreciate that exams, deadlines, and life often get in the way of volunteer roles like these. We will work with you to deal with these issues.
