Volunteer with CAMRA

Now is the perfect opportunity for you to help CAMRA. It continues to be a challenging time for our pubs and breweries but, you, our members have proved to be determined, resilient and inventive – campaigning and working hard to protect pubs and breweries.

Volunteer with CAMRA

By volunteering, you’ll meet like-minded people who share your love of all things beer, cider, perry and pubs. There are many ways to get involved – helping at festivals, liaising with breweries, campaigning locally and promoting CAMRA.

Take a look at our latest volunteer opportunities or complete the Volunteer Interest form below to let us know what you’d like to do.

Support CAMRA in your region as a Young Member Co-ordinator!

The Young Members Advisory Group represents the needs of CAMRA’s young members – those aged 18-30 – to ensure that the Campaign continues to attract the next generation of beer-lovers and pub-goers. The Group’s Chair sits on the People Committee to represent young members across the Campaign.

Regional Young Member Co-ordinators have previously met annually and kept in touch online. We’re currently looking for Co-ordinators in the following CAMRA regions:

Kent, Central Southern, East Midlands, North East, South West, Scotland & Northern Ireland, Wessex, West Midlands, West Pennines and Yorkshire.

But anyone interested at all, please get in touch!

It’s a great way to use and develop skills in campaigning, communication, planning, and collaborative working – and more!

Under CAMRA’s Volunteer Expenses policy, you can claim back travel costs for national meetings.

Improving my beer knowledge

I’ve been part of CAMRA’s tasting panels since they were set-up in 1989. During this time I have met some incredibly knowledgeable people and tasted many fantastic beers. Great fun!

Helping save pubs

We’re all committed to preserving and growing our pubs – we work together for a common goal

Getting out and about

As a Brewery Liaison Officer and a branch committee member, I survey pubs for our Mild Trail, Stout & Porter Stroll and IPA Hop. I also deliver around 200 of our ‘Nottingham Drinkers’ magazine.

It’s easy to do

CAMRA make it really easy to start volunteering, with heaps of resources and lots of support from existing committee members

Using my skills

I’m one of 60+ members – the Managers, Deputies and Permanents who help make the Great British Beer Festival run successfully

- Graham, Portsmouth

Invaluable experience

My volunteering in wet stock logistics and getting trained in fork lift driving has proved invaluable – it led to a new job where I’m using those specific skills.

- James, Shropshire

A warm welcome

I became Editor for my local Branch Magazine in 2020. I’ve always enjoyed writing and realised incorporating my existing illustration and graphic design skills would be a great way to help CAMRA. I had no previous experience in this role but my fellow branch members were all very friendly and incredibly enthusiastic about me joining the team.

- Matt, Maidenhead
