We occasionally look for committed and interested people who would like to volunteer with us on our various programmes and activities throughout the year.

Volunteering opportunities include supporting some of our administrative and programme staff as well as being involved in organising RAS events such as our two cultural festivals, Africa Writes and Film Africa.

As a volunteer you’ll learn more about us as an organisation, be involved in organising some exciting programmes and events, and get an opportunity to meet like-minded people.

Africa Writes, 30 June - 2 July 2017

Africa Writes returns to the British Library this summer, and we are looking for volunteers who are passionate about African literature. The festival takes place from Friday 30 June to Sunday 2 July. If you would like to be a part of the Africa Writes 2017 team, download the role description on the Africa Writes website and send your application in by Wednesday 10 May.
