Volunteering

Volunteering with Retirement Postponed.

Location: Anywhere in the UK

Date Posted: 11/12/2018

Closing Date: 08/03/2019

Editorial Volunteers.

Writers:

We’re looking for volunteers to provide stories and features that fit into the RP look and feel.  Stories are true and verifiable; they should have an original or special take on life, be positive, illuminating, forward-looking. The tone should be light-hearted, positive and sincere.

Minimum 500 words, up to 1500+ if the mood takes you. If it contains elements that you have found elsewhere (say on a Google search) include links to the original, so we can attach the correct credits.

All outside submissions will be credited to the correspondent.

All posts will be checked for content and may be edited where appropriate.

RP doesn’t engage in material that is specifically party political, religious or partisan.

Photography/Images: Please feel free to supply photographs, designs or images with any submission. We have set ourselves a very high pictorial standard, so please try to reflect this. All images may be replaced with appropriate alternatives for design consistency.

Editors:

Retirement Postponed is comprised of a large number of individual interest sections; each of these could be developed and managed by an individual editor. If you find a part of our site that interests you sufficiently, we could work with you to create your own sub-section to lead, contributing both to growing RP and your reputation.

 

IT and Social Media

RP has both Twitter and Facebook.  We welcome friends and followers to both platforms. Facebook can accommodate any number of special interest groups; if you would like to start one and are prepared to manage it we will happily partner you. If you have special IT skills and would be prepared to help on a voluntary basis,  please let us know – as we develop we may need you.

Listings

Much of the information we are gathering requires copying and transferring into the lists we present. This is time-consuming but can be very satisfying, and can be done remotely. If you’d like to me on board at this stage as a volunteer, it could become an opportunity for paid work later on.

 

Fund-raising

We need funds to keep going, who doesn’t?  If you could help, please get in touch. This is one area where are going to have appointed a leader very soon; if that could be you, let us know as soon as possible.
