The Outreach Team
Outreach is dedicated to making sure that actions and events are supported by outreach to the public, and ensuring that when needed, actions have a Welcome Hub / Outreach Hub to provide attendees and the public with information and advice.

The Team and Current Situation
We are a small team of four, but growing. We're looking to expand the scope of work for the team to include different types of outreach and mobilisation. This is being worked out currently. If you're interested in coordinating outreach, we can discuss the changes with you.
As per the usual ways that XR teams works everyone involved in the work gets a full say on everything - so you will too - and we will look to add more people to the team with specific remits, or skills, as the development of future plans progresses.

Events Coordinator Role

There's so much happening in groups across the UK, we can't possibly support every action. We need someone to keep an eye on what is happening across the country and help the group decide, based on the priorities we have, which actions to prioritise for our Outreach support. The Events coordinator will work closely with the Volunteer coordinator and Training coordinator to make the most of our pool of volunteer outreachers.

Purpose:
Priority opportunities for outreach across the UK are identified and outreach at these events is organised.

Accountabilities:

  • Keep updated of Operations’ priorities relating to actions and events.
  • Regularly check events map and calendar for actions which align with priorities.
  • Work with Volunteer Coordinator to mobilise volunteers to priority events.
  • Work with Training Coordinator to ensure mobilised volunteers are prepared.
  • This role is being advertised by the following working group:
