Current Volunteer Roles

Campaigns Steering Group

We are looking for some more volunteers to join the group to help develop our process and manage AIMS Campaigning work. No specific knowledge or experience is necessary, and you will be given support and guidance, so it's a great opportunity to have a go and learn about this crucial aspect of AIMS work - one of the key ways in which we can influence improvements.

Sales and Marketing for AIMS Books

We are currently publishing a new range of AIMS Guides and need someone to help boost our sales. At the moment we have a shop on our website where most of the sales occur, and an Amazon account for selling books and Kindle versions. Ideally we would like to get the books into book shops and we have some ideas about how we can do this - we just need someone with the time and energy to make this happen. The person we are looking for will work closely with the Publications group and link with the Social Media group for advertising. Experience of selling would be an advantage, but the main requirements are computer and organisational skills, plus enthusiasm! The Sales and Marketing requires a big input to boost sales quickly but thereafter will be less onerous - needing more input when a new book comes out.

If you are interested this role please email publications@aims.org.uk

Stock control, Shop and Mailing Admin

We need someone to help with stock control, keeping the shop up-to-date and liaising with our mailer (a contractor). Competency with computer skills would be an advantage, but we can train you to use the website and shop inputs. For this job you will liaise with the Publications Group and the Treasurer. The Stock Control, Shop and Mailing Admin should only require one to two hours a week, with a little more work when a new book is launched.

Opportunity to write an AIMS book

AIMS is looking for authors to write new AIMS Guides on a variety of subjects. We are able to offer payment for this writing work. We would be very happy to consider a pair of writers who would like to work together on a book.

Ideally, authors will have previously written articles or web pages, either for AIMS or for other publications, or will have already published a book(s). It is important to be able to write in an easily accessible way, giving evidence based information where available and drawing attention to the limitations of the evidence where appropriate. The ability to understand and critique clinical evidence is an essential skill.

AIMS has a well-defined, collaborative and successful production process; you will be the principal author(s) and the book will be fully peer reviewed and edited before release.

To declare an interest in working with us, please send a CV, example(s) of your writing, and your subject of interest to shane.ridley@aims.org.uk
