Join the Norwich Mumbler team!

Norwich Mumbler is the go-to place for families in and around Norwich and we’re looking for people who love Mumbler and want to join the team!

I am recruiting someone to take on some Norwich Mumbler work to give me a bit of a maternity leave whilst I spend some time getting to know a new tiny human (and you know, not sleeping etc!).  This will be a paid role.

Maternity Cover role: 

The ideal candidate will be someone who is confident with great communications skills, as well as being really organised.  You need to be good with detail and take pride in doing a job well.

You’ll be required to update listings on the website, create content that is relevant to local families and promote areas of the website on social media.

You will also be required to give high quality responses to advertising enquiries & have the ability to think about other people’s needs for their organisation.  Sales experience would be great but it’s not essential…it’s not about cold calling (we never do this) but it is about responding to organisations well and ensuring the promotion on Mumbler is right for them.

The details of the role are to be confirmed as it will be dependant on the skills and lifestyle requirements of the successful applicant (The hours can work around your own childcare needs… school hours, flexible etc), but it will be broadly 5-6 hours per week for up to 12 weeks and likely to be around the living wage pay on a sub-contract basis.


90% of what we do on Mumbler is free of charge and I want to keep it that way. It’s free for people to use both the website and the Facebook group and most businesses can have a free listing somewhere on the website as long as there is a relevant area.  This takes a lot of time and upkeep so I’m also looking for volunteers to help with research and checking the listings on the website.

The details of the volunteer roles can be altered based on the applicants own personal passion areas and experience. Anything can be taught but I want to hear from people who love Mumbler and want to make life easier for parents in and around Norwich.


To apply to be part of the team just e-mail with your CV attached and answer the following questions:

  1. Why do you want to work or volunteer for Norwich Mumbler?
  2. Where’s your favourite family-friendly place to go or thing to do in Norfolk?
  3. How would your friends or family describe you in no more than 10 words?

I look forward to hearing from you!
