Volunteer with XR UK

We are looking for several people to join our UK working groups, across a number of different roles. Please read through the role descriptions below, and fill in this form to express your interest.

Our aim is to build a mass participatory movement. We want everyone to be involved. At the same time, we anticipate there will be a large number of responses for every role listed below. It might take us a while, but we will endeavour to help everyone who responds to this form to identify how best they can participate in the movement.

Everyone who works with XR does so as a volunteer. We have a system in place that can provide volunteers with essential living expenses, when funding is available. You can read more about how this system works, and why we use it, in this google doc. A specific conversation about living expenses can be organised later, so please don’t let financial restrictions prevent you from filling in the form at this stage.

If you have any questions about this process, you can contact us at xr_integration@protonmail.com.
