Social Media Manager (Volunteer)

About us

We and AI is a Non-Profit Organisation set up and run by volunteers from a range of different backgrounds and occupations. 

We work to increase the awareness and understanding of Artificial Intelligence (AI) amongst the general UK population. 

This is essential to empower people to have a say in how the technology making decisions about them should be used and controlled. 

We are currently creating ways to engage people in the potential risks and rewards of the AI already in their lives and to show different ways to get their voices heard.

Help us make sure there is humanity in technology!

How to Apply

The first stage involves you writing a short motivation letter (no more than 500 words or one A4 page) outlining your skills and motivations. Please submit your supporting letter and CV to using the volunteer job title as the email subject line. If you would like to make a submission in a different format, such as video or audio, please also get in touch to inform us.


If successful with your application, the second stage involves a follow-up interview, and then a session to discuss in more detail that the programme can fit into your situation and commitments. The first interview will typically be via video conference but will endeavour to fit around any accessibility needs. Feedback will be given to unsuccessful candidates.

Please note: We particularly encourage people who come from all kinds of minorities (e.g. related to race, ethnicity, sex, gender, sexuality, (dis)ability), or from disadvantaged backgrounds to apply. This is in order to help increase the diversity of people being considered in the development and use of AI and automation, which is currently not at all representative of the population. However, we are fully inclusive, welcoming all people, from any geographic location (UK or UK focused), educational background, or age.
