SharedEd is a Nottingham-based not for profit seeking to help school pupils aged 11-16 in the Midlands to understand and become confident in managing their money and finances in a sensible way. This is done through the delivery of exciting and engaging workshops which have been developed with the help of teachers, financial advisers, and perhaps most importantly, 11-16 year olds themselves.
Financial Literacy Workshop Instructor – As a volunteer, you’d be helping SharedEd deliver fun, interactive workshops in secondary schools, teaching kids the basics of managing their money.
You should be someone who either has prior knowledge of, or the desire to learn about financial literacy and managing money. It is useful if you have some experience working with young people, particularly in a classroom setting, but not essential - as long as you have the desire to get stuck in, you'll fit right into the team!
Business Case Officer - SharedEd are a small, relatively new organisation and they need a volunteer to help them build business cases to secure external funding, and complete application forms for grants and awards.
Social Media Officer - SharedEd are also looking for volunteers to manage their social media channels, mainly Twitter and Facebook. This is great experience for anyone looking to work in marketing or copywriting in the future!
FutureHack Workshop Instructor – As a volunteer, you’d be helping SharedEd deliver interactive workshops about future technologies where we discuss Artificial Intelligence, Driverless Cars, Virtual Reality etc.
SharedEd would prefer students who can take part in a minimum of 3 workshops, so that both you, and the school pupils can really make the most of the opportunity.
Each workshop lasts 5½ in total. They are split into 3 different sessions of 1 hour and 45 minutes, and they will all be delivered on different days.
The business case officer and social media officer are needed on a more ad-hoc basis, and can do work remotely if they choose.
The workshops will take place in secondary schools across the Nottingham city area, all of which will be easily accessible via public transport.

What's in it for me?
This opportunity is great for anyone wanting to improve their public speaking and communication skills, or anyone wanting to further their experience in a classroom setting.
SharedEd are experts in financial literacy, so you may even learn a thing or two about managing your own money!
