Summary

We need enthusiastic, motivated folks with a passion for 'slow' fashion to help run community clothes swaps. Contribute to our vision for a clothing revolution!

Detailed description

We Wear The Trousers is a not-for-profit organisation empowering people to keep their clothing in active use for longer through events, education and engagement. We believe that in this age of fast fashion, choosing to share, repair and rewear is a political act.


As well as promoting reuse and exploring ‘sustainability’ within fashion, we want to foster an inclusive, community-minded atmosphere at our events; to join people together and forge new connections.


That’s where you come in! We need enthusiastic, dynamic, motivated folks to help us grow through 2023 and beyond. We’re running a range of exciting community clothes swaps & are looking for dedicated volunteers to get stuck in. You’ll also have the chance to contribute directly to the collective vision at our team meetings.


At We Wear The Trousers we value the unique skills, passions & interests each individual brings- if there are skills you want to develop we’ll do our best to support you to do so. We believe volunteering should be a positive and productive experience for all.


What you might be doing*:


Helping to set up & take down events

Providing a warm welcome to participants & answering questions

Promoting WWTT, our mission & events

Looking after WWTT resources/materials/clothes as required

Taking photos for our social media

Giving feedback on events & contributing ideas for improvement


*These are examples of the main things we need help with at our events. If you have a particular area you'd like to work on, we can be flexible to suit your needs & development :)


What we are looking for:


Reliability & ability to commit to events in advance

Enthusiasm & willingness to learn

Non-judgemental attitude, understanding of the needs & circumstances of others

Willingness to abide by our ethics/code of conduct (full training will be given)


What you might be looking for: 


Developing your existing skills & gaining new ones

Meeting like-minded folk & being part of a supportive & inclusive team

Interacting with the local community to bring people together

Growing an interest in ethics & sustainability within fashion

Sharing ideas to directly contribute to an organisation you believe in

Being part of building a slow fashion community in Norwich
