The Royal Photographic has 300+ volunteers, in many different roles, who give up their time to help run this large, worldwide charity

Opportunities for volunteers range from helping on a local level, to applying for election as a member of our Council when you have been involved in a Society for a long time. 


The kind of roles that exist are:

Event Organisers

Webmasters to manage the Region/Chapter or Group microsite within this website

Regional Organisers


Newsletter Editors

Magazine Editors

Feature Writers for magazines and blogs on the website

General Committee Members

Area Representatives such as Strathclyde or Fife in Scotland.

In the first instance contact your local Chapter/Region or Special Interest Group representative to introduce yourself, find out what opportunities are available and to let them know the skills you have to offer - they will be able to guide you from there.  If your Region, Group or Chapter has a Committee page within this website you may also see vacancies advertised there.

Paid roles within The Society are rare (we are a happy and content bunch who tend to stay for the long term once we have joined the team!), but if vacancies are advertised you will find information on them here.
