Media & Messaging External Coordinator

Role description:

Working closely with the Media and Messaging working group's internal coordinators and subgroup coordinators, the external coordinator represents the group throughout Extinction Rebellion UK (XRUK). The external coordinator ensures information flows between the group and the movement's various circles and working groups. We are keen to train up new coordinators. What we are really looking for is someone with strong interpersonal skills, who is kind, approachable, dedicated and organised. Someone who is happy to roll up their sleeves and much in, with a positive and 'can do' attitude. Everything else we can teach you! To get a bit of an understanding of the role, please see below. But please be aware that as a trainee you would be shadowing and working along side the current EC until you are ready and comfortable to take over.

External coordinator core duties:

  • Representing the working group throughout the movement, attending regular meetings including Operations Circle, Actions Circle and Relationships.
  • Representing M&M on the Strategy team (whether that's in meetings or feeding back on documents)
  • Being part of the Messaging & Content/Editorial team: helping with overall messaging for the movement, writing content for outreach materials and the website.
  • Finding a replacement to represent the group in the wider circle meeting if they can’t attend
  • Managing information flow between this group and others as necessary
  • Assisting the internal coordinator(s) if they are away or over capacity
  • Being the main point of contact for other working groups and circles that want to speak to the M&M working group
  • Reporting back from other circles and working groups in the weekly Monday morning M&M meeting
  • Dealing with tensions and challenges arising in which M&M has a stake or plays a role

    We ask everyone volunteering with Extinction Rebellion UK to:

    • Sign the volunteer agreement
    • Adhere to our principles and values
    • Respect our regenerative cultures
