Freedom Foundation
Marketing assistant
 

Freedom Factory is an organisation that offers children and young people regardless of race or gender, the opportunity to explore their individuality and learn to appreciate their self-worth. We aim to expand the minds of young people through a series of creative, thought provoking sessions that unlock their hidden talents and nurture their creative individuality through our development programs.

“Freedom Factory is not just a place to learn, it is a safe space to share.”

We believe that children are becoming more aware of their body image at a very young age. Hours spent on social media sites and apps have contributed to this.  Young people are continually shown unrealistic images of what a perfect figure or face is which has left many children with a number of anxieties and issues that they now have to deal with on a daily basis. 

Bullying and self-harming are becoming a regular occurrence in our schools today, which is enhanced by the number of people sharing information via social media amongst their peers.

The age of the 'selfie' and use of photographic filters, has changed how we value ourselves, and we believe it is now the time to address these problems head on.  

Here at Freedom Factory we offer a mentoring program to allow children to share their feelings and ideas, whilst educating them about the pros and cons of social media and how it is used within the creative industry for self-promotion. 

Teaching young people to understand their value and to not compare themselves to others is paramount.  We have created a series of programs that will educate and motivate, and help young individuals who have not realised their full potential yet.Our programs are divided into a series of modules that enable young people to access information and support, whilst educating them about working in various sectors of the creative industry.

Whether that be as a singer or songwriter, dancer, artist, designer or blogger, we are giving young people a voice to express their feelings and emotions to release their inner capabilities.

Length of opportunity: Eight weeks

Salary/hourly rate: £7.83 per hour

Job description:

You will be working on a campaign to promote safety in social media. Working with a PR agency you will be promoting the campaign, responding to requests and requirements. Dealing with social media on a day to day basis – responses and actions. Dealing with media outlets to arrange interviews. Using Freedom Factory's social media to promote the campaign.

This campaign will have been set up over the previous six months so it will be following a plan in place but also coming up with ideas to feed into the plan.

The role will be based out of offices in town and you will be working independently under the guidance of the directors and the PR company.

Skills/requirements:

Essential:

  • Excellent knowledge of social media platforms, particularly Instagram.

Imara
Research and marketing intern
 

Imara CIO is a registered charity (1170331) that works to empower children and families in Nottingham to recover from the impact of sexual abuse. We are a small flexible responsive team and have built up a reputation as a reliable provider of support to children and families in Nottingham. 

Our mission statement is that child victims of familial child sexual abuse and their families recover and rebuild their lives and that recovery starts as soon as the disclosure is made, through our early action. A timely intervention reduces the additional trauma of shock of disclosure, by quickly normalising emotional and behavioural reactions, providing strategies and advocating on families’ behalf, allowing them to regain confidence and draw on their resources.

We currently provide support from two perspectives: pre- and post-trial creative arts therapy, and impartial advocacy and legal support throughout and beyond the criminal justice process. We work with all safe family members as well as the victim, recognising the impact disclosure has on the whole family and also the corrosion of family relationships that results from grooming by perpetrators.

Imara has received approximately 35 new referrals from Notts Police Child Abuse Investigation Unit per year and is committed to working with our clients for as long as they want and need us, working actively to support approximately 100 individuals per annum.

Our referral pathway is set to change with the establishment of a new paediatric SARC and planned developments of local CHISVA provision, which we are looking to be involved in and will undoubtedly present new challenges to rise to in our determination for all young people in Nottingham affected by sexual abuse to receive the highest quality support they need and deserve.

Length of opportunity: Four weeks minimum  

Salary/hourly rate: £7.83 per hour 

Job description:

The internship we are offering will consist of a self-contained independent project, involving aspects of research, networking and marketing. We are flexible to collaborate and negotiate with the student as to the specific topic and aims of the project, but our idea is to develop and improve access to and uptake of our service by individuals with disabilities and additional needs or individuals from minority ethnic backgrounds. 

There is evidence indicating that children and young people with disabilities are at an increased risk and incidence of sexual abuse, but we currently receive very few referrals of children with disabilities and our active caseload does not reflect these statistics. Likewise, while our caseload is becoming more ethnically diverse, the clients we actively support still do not reflect the full diversity of Nottingham and we are sure there is more we could do to improve our cultural competence in providing services to clients from minority ethnic backgrounds. 

A project into these questions could involve, for example:

  • research into the national and local statistics regarding these groups and best practice. Researching potential barriers for them disclosing sexual abuse, reporting to police, being referred to our service or engaging and benefitting from our services. 
  • identifying and making contact with charities, research groups and organisations with expertise into these groups to establish connections and ask for guidance and resources.
  • Developing press releases, blogs, social media posts and videos about their project and findings for our website, social media accounts and public communication.

There would also be opportunities for the student to contribute to ongoing and regular fundraising, monitoring, evaluation and research, and marketing and communication projects and duties within Imara alongside their independent project.

This would allow them to learn about the daily workings of a small charity and experience what it would be like if they go into the charity sector after graduating.

Skills/requirements:

Essential:

  • Research skills – ideally from a degree discipline that involves an independent research project or dissertation
  • Good written and verbal communication skills 
  • Ability to work independently and collaboratively
  • Initiative and motivation

Desirable:

  • An understanding, knowledge of or interest in trauma, childhood mental health and adverse events, and sexual abuse
  • Interest in or experience of the voluntary and charity sector

Internship outcomes:

The outcome of the project could be to develop and present a proposal or set of recommendations to us of how we can better facilitate these groups to access and engage with Imara, or to raise Imara’s profile as an ally or safe space dedicated to supporting these groups and improving access to the service. We would also welcome a report that we can use to highlight this work to other stakeholders.

Length of opportunity: Four weeks

Salary/hourly rate: £7.83 per hour

Job description:

We are mindful that to date we have failed to really inspire the wider community, building users and our congregation with our upcoming 'Opening the Heart of Kingswood' building development project.

Our main entrance is currently rather dim and unwelcoming, and the toilet facilities are in need of a facelift. Indeed the accessible toilets do not comply with current regulations.

We intend to take this opportunity to improve the layout of our community centre to create a bright welcoming space for social activities which stimulates interaction between the groups visiting the building. The toilet layout will be improved and a fully compliant accessible toilet will be provided. The new community space will be flooded with daylight and reduce our environmental impact.

The completed project will benefit a wide range of users of all ages and abilities. The local area is highly populated by a wide cross-section of households including single parents, families, and a high density of people living in assisted living accommodation. In addition, two care homes have opened very close to the building recently. There is a need for more social activities to combat loneliness and the community centre will be able to meet this need.

This will enable new activities to be carried out, enhance the experience of current users by improving the circulation of people around the premises and make it easier to maintain security for vulnerable people.
Secondary project aims are to create an access route to a green space outside the building and to provide a play area for toddler groups behind the vestry.  

Physical works to be undertaken are as follows:

  • Remove existing toilets
  • Remodel and internally extend existing utility room to create new male and female toilets
  • Create a new compliant accessible toilet and a new utility room
  • Install roof sun pipes and additional windows in the light well adjacent to the new community space
  • Replace the existing flat roof over the new community space
  • The existing kitchen serving hatch to be relocated
  • Internal corridors and fittings to be remodelled to suit fire compartmentation
  • Create a new access point from the building together with a compliant ramp, demolish and remove a dilapidated porch at one side of the building replace existing cast iron radiators with low surface temperature models where appropriate.

Our intern would be asked to:

  • Consult and inspire stakeholders
  • Produce and initiate an imaginative
  • Communications plan
  • Produce branding
  • Progress our funding applications and investigate other potential funding options
  • Produce and initiate a marketing plan
  • Develop our current business plan
  • Create imaginative uses for our new community space

Skills/requirements:

Essential:

  • Self motivated
  • Able to work independently
  • Able to communicate at all levels
  • Creative
  • Able to produce communications and marketing plans
  • Willing to comply with confidentiality and safeguarding requirements.

Desirable:

  • Favourable to the Christian faith

Internship outcomes:

  • Communications plan in place
  • Branding in place
  • Funding applications submitted
  • Other potential funders identified
  • Marketing plan produced
  • Membership of the 'opening the heart of Kingswood' team increased
  • Non-church members having joined the 'opening the heart of Kingswood' team
  • Intern to have enjoyed the placement

Nottingham Bikeworks
Research and marketing internship
 

Nottingham Bikeworks is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company (CIC) first established in 2014 by current director Tom Barber. The idea grew out of his varied experience as a community cycling professional and a recognition that Nottingham lacked comprehensive bike recycling and community cycling services. 

Since October 2014 we have been based in a spacious Victorian mill building located in the inner-city arboretum area of Nottingham, the most socially deprived ward in the city. With a tiny start-up budget our aim has always been to develop sustainably and organically in direct response to the needs of the local community we seek to serve. We have expanded steadily and now have a staff of four full-time and one part-time staff, including one whom we first took on as an apprentice.

Our annual turnover has risen by 160% over three years and is projected to rise by a further 40% in our current financial year. We work as collectively as possible in reaching decisions under the governance of our board of non-executive directors. We consult and obtain feedback on all our activities and always seek to respond positively and creatively to the opinions and wishes of our customers and service users. 

We love bikes and believe passionately that they provide a low-tech solution to many problems of society. They provide a practical mode of transport and are also fun, affordable, benefit mental and physical well-being and are environmentally sustainable.

Our primary aims are to:  

  • encourage and support more people to use bikes as regular, everyday transport
  • utilise bikes and cycling as tools for education, enabling and engagement
  • improve community cohesion particularly for disadvantaged groups
  • reduce waste by returning unwanted bikes back into the community

We achieve these aims by providing a comprehensive range of cycle-related activities:

  • Offering a wide range of projects and training opportunities for individuals, groups and organisations, with a particular focus on vulnerable young people and the disadvantaged
  • A fully inclusive workshop environment with expert, accessible supervision
  • Encouraging self-reliance and skill-sharing via an extensive programme of bike maintenance classes and workshop sessions
  • Keeping bikes safe and functional by carrying out repairs at the workshop and in the community
  • Acting as a community focus for bike-related activities
  • Saving bicycles and reusable parts from recycling and landfill and offer them for resale and reuse at reasonable prices

Some markers of our successful development:

  • 132 young people completed our ‘earn-a-bike’ projects
  • Numerous successful partnerships, working with both statutory and non-statutory organisations
  • Over 650 unwanted bikes returned to community use
  • 436 people received bike maintenance training
  • Over 3,000 bikes repaired in the workshop and at community events
  • 650 volunteer hours donated

Length of opportunity: Four weeks (with possible extension of a further two to four weeks)

Salary/hourly rate: £7.83 per hour

Job description:

Nottingham Bikeworks requires support to increase the income that we receive from sales of refurbished, used bikes. We receive unwanted donated bikes from a variety of sources.

Around 60% of these (including all the higher quality bikes) are repaired and serviced by volunteers and qualified staff mechanics to bring them to standard where they can be sold on. The income from these sales forms a crucial part of our income (around 30% of our total) and helps subsidise the less profitable community and educational activities that lie at the core of our mission.

The successful candidates will be required to devise and implement a marketing and publicity strategy aimed at maximising our sale of used bikes. Such a strategy will require parallel expansion of donations and higher volume of bike refurbishment which may well require more efficient use of volunteers. 

The main focus for the intern however will be to find effective ways of expanding and extending the sales themselves. After analysis of the current situation, methods employed might include improving and expanding our retailing space, producing leaflets, articles, newsletters, email, online selling and direct mail marketing, social media and video marketing and publicity events.

The intention will be to both expand our existing customer base as well as developing new markets across both the business community and the general public.

Skills/requirements:

Skills and experience:

  • Excellent written and verbal communicator
  • Excellent IT skills
  • Marketing and publicity 

Personal qualities and interests:

  • Well organised and energetic
  • Creative and imaginative
  • Real commitment to equal opportunities and access for all
  • Self-motivated, able to think independently and employ own initiative
  • Able to work cooperatively and flexibly as part of a small team

Desirable:

  • Interest in social justice and community initiatives 
  • Interest in cycling and environmental issues

Internship outcomes:

Developing and implementing an effective marketing strategy for increasing the sales of refurbished bikes. We believe a realistic target is a doubling of sales in the six month period from July to December 2018 when compared to same period last year.

Transform Training Ltd
Education partnerships coordinator
 

At Transform we are committed to transforming lives through our unique training courses and programmes. The foundation of our work is emotional resilience, and all of our activity promotes positive personal development, well-being and inclusion. We are a registered charity that delivers programmes and bespoke training to support disadvantaged young people in our local communities and schools.

We transform lives by helping people to see that they can take control of their reactions to things that happen in the lives by using emotional literacy and by becoming emotionally resilient. How you react to the situations you find yourself in is the key to how successful you are in life. This is the case whether you are a CEO of a blue chip company or a young offender from the most deprived part of the country. It is the same for everyone.

Some people have a head start in this because they were lucky enough to grow up in a situation where life was slightly easier, and the people around them were emotionally literate and resilient. Some people have had things happen to them along the way that have shaped their ability to cope with difficult situations, such as trauma, abuse or neglect.

At Transform we spend most of our time and energy supporting these individuals. This is where the need is great. This is where the outcomes are dramatic and life changing. Sometimes we work directly with vulnerable, disadvantaged or disabled young people or vulnerable adults, and sometimes we work with others who can make a contribution, such as professionals who work directly with young people, or corporates who can help fund the direct work.

We have been awarded Derby Internship Programme Employer of the Year 2017, in the University of Derby Employability Awards.

Length of opportunity: Four weeks

Salary/hourly rate: £7.83 per hour
