The Hive is the democratic heart of XRUK, where representatives from the Nations, Regions, Community Groups and UK-wide Circles come together to support the organisation - and we need a facilitator.


The structure and purpose of a meeting, training or event is well supported. The Constitution, Principles & Values, Circle agreements, inclusivity and regenerative cultures are upheld in meetings.


  • Facilitating meetings, training, or events on behalf of the Team in line with facilitation training.
  • Maintaining confidentiality outside of meetings; not sharing or using information learned in meetings without consent.
  • Keeping up-to-date with facilitation and SOS training.
  • Upholding SOS and any agreements made by the Circle, Working Group, or project team.
  • Encouraging a culture of inclusivity, trust and safety in meetings.
  • Ensuring that decision-making processes are appropriate and properly structured.
  • Deciding whether objections are valid based on the Constitutional criteria for Integrative Decision Making (IDM).
  • Deciding what form of decision-making to use for non Governance decisions.
  • Choosing which version of the election process to use (as listed in the Constitution).
  • Keeping agendas on track and on time with the support of the Internal Coordinator and minute-taker.
  • Deferring to the IC of the circle about what to prioritise during a meeting.
  • Ensuring that meeting attendees speak from their roles unless the person bringing the agenda item or the group has explicitly agreed for them not to.
  • Stopping someone from talking if they are breaking the Principles & Values (eg blaming or shaming), the Constitution, or speaking outside their role without the group’s agreement.
  • As a last resort removing someone from a meeting if they refuse to adhere to group agreements of that team, the Principles & Values or the Constitution, otherwise disrupt the meeting or repeatedly ignore the facilitator's requests for them to speak from their role.
