Job and Volunteering Opportunities

Volunteers wanted for our English Classes

We are currently looking for volunteers for our English classes, events and for general administration duties. If you are looking for a volunteering role and share Sunrise’s aims we would love to hear from you.

All volunteers receive training and are fully supported by staff. If you would like to apply, or you would like to find out more information please telephone 01271 328915 or email

Sunrise is looking for three people to join its Board as Directors 

Sunrise is the main organisation championing inclusion across Northern Devon. Its purpose is celebrating diversity, challenging discrimination and changing attitudes.

A consultant working with us on a recent away day said what an exciting future the organisation has and commented on the great team and how well we all work together.

We are looking for an individual to take on the responsibility of the treasurer but this is not as onerous as it sounds. If you are financially literate, governance aware, process driven and analytical and able to take an overview of the financial health of the organisation, this role may suit you. We don’t think you need to be a qualified accountant, our CEO is a capable financial manager and our accounts are relatively simple.

We are also seeking to recruit a couple more people who between them are entrepreneurial, opportunity seeking, risk taking, innovative and tech savvy, perhaps an app developer? Of course you may only have some of these qualities but overall we know these are the areas where we have gaps in our current range of skills.

Join us as we become a charity, establish a wider and more sustainable range of income and work to achieve our aims of an increasingly accepting and inclusive community.

Take a look at the recruitment spec, then simply send an expression of interest by email to with a short explanation of why you would like to join us and what skills you bring.
