hi there

We’re Bright One, a volunteer-run communications agency for the third sector. Our brilliant team of thinkers, doers and designers helps with strategy, branding, digital and PR at little to no cost, so charities and not-for-profit organisations can focus on the important stuff – their missions. Unlike other agencies, all our profits are reinvested to develop volunteers’ skillsets and foster capacity in the industry, ensuring brighter futures for all involved.

    “I would thoroughly recommend volunteering for Bright One to any student. The guys you’ll work with are incredibly helpful and will gladly answer any queries you might have. As you’re working for clients in the third sector, you also feel like you’re helping a worthwhile cause. Not to mention the great experience in PR, meaning if you’re looking for a placement year or seeing employment after you graduate, there is no doubt that this experience will mean you’re one step ahead of the competition”

  • “Volunteering with Bright One offers not only a fantastic opportunity to run communications campaigns for not-for-profits, but a chance to work in teams made up of people from a wide variety of backgrounds. Whether you’re a student wanting to try your hand at PR or an experienced comms professional keen to share your knowledge, Bright One offers something for everyone.”

    “I have been continually delighted by Bright One; how great to be offered such valuable support at a time when there’s no way we could afford it. I was delighted when I met the team of volunteers – who are fantastic – and have continued to be inspired and impressed ever since. All the volunteers have put more time and passion into our project than I believed possible, and the results have been great. There’s no way we could have achieved the coverage we’ve got on our own. I’m so grateful to the whole team.”
