Internal Coordinator | XRUK Talks and Training

Group:XRUK Talks & Training
Location:From home role with XR UK (UK Wide)
Hours per week:5-9
No. spaces available:2
Meeting Time:Wednesdays 10-11.30am
Meeting Format:Conference call
Meeting Schedule:Attend the Wednesday meetings whenever possible. Other hours flexible. This role can be shared.
Essential Skills:Good team builder
Good organisational, planning and communication skills.
Desired Skills:An understanding of the importance of talks and training in peoples' journey into activism though it is not necessary to have a background in training.
Accessibility considerations:If you're hard of hearing (closed captions can be used during meetings) or visually impaired, then the online meeting aspect may be a barrier. You would need to be able to use a computer/keyboard.

The role can be shared between two people, reducing the time commitment necessary.

The XRUK Talks and Training [T&T] team is a healthy and well-functioning happy team of people who turn up on time and usually do what they said they would do.

The role of the Internal Coordinator is essentially one of team building; it involves stewarding the team, supporting people, identifying gaps and filling roles. You could think of this as HR for the talks and training team perhaps!

This role is perfect for someone who is a good team builder, who finds it rewarding to help others play to their strengths and to work together to be far greater than the sum of our parts. Full support is given. The current holder is not running away, it is just time for a change, and some new energy and ideas.

Able to commit to attending the meeting most Wednesday mornings. You should be comfortable using a computer, nothing fancy, just emailing, using message platforms and using/creating shared documents. Again, full support is given.
